Year started with Sovereign: May 2019

I’ve worked in the play industry for over 12 years, amassing a wealth of experience in a wide range of markets. My passion, however, is working within the education sector, and I have helped to create hundreds of healthy and exciting play spaces which thousands of children have enjoyed.

Although I enjoy most sports, my main love is golf, but with two sporty, grown-up sons who play for local football teams and a daughter who loves horse-riding and basketball, my weekends are spent more in a supporting role… for now, at least!

Best thing about my job:

It gives me the opportunity to work with teachers and children to improve the school’s outdoor environment, helping them grow and develop into the next stages of their lives.

Favourite playtime game as a child:

Has to be golf…  I took up playing it when I was five.

Favourite piece of Sovereign Play equipment:

The Titan – it’s a robust piece of equipment that can be anything the children want it to be! It offers great value for money and is big enough to accommodate an entire school class.

Case Study:

Sherington pre-school

“The installation of the new playground has been more successful than we could have ever hoped. The large pergola has made a wonderful shaded area from the sun and we’ve been able to have activities outside when it’s raining too. The surface change has made the transition of outdoors to indoors, much easier, with no need to change muddy shoes or wellies. Bikes and trikes are much easier to manoeuvre around the flat surface. The mud kitchen, climbing unit and adventure mound are firm favourites. Staff and children enjoy the outdoor space so much more!”


Don’t just take our word for it

Thank you for the amazing job your people did on our playground recently. It looks fantastic. The photographs actually do not do it justice. It looks amazing and has been admired by all who have seen it. The children love it too. Once again thank you for your excellent customer service. It's been a pleasure.

The children are absolutely delighted with the trail and it looks fantastic! I have ‘Tweeted’ some pictures and tagged Sovereign Play in, and one of your colleagues has been in touch with regard to re using it which is of course fine!

I had a look at the play equipment with my grandson yesterday. He gave it a big thumbs up. There were other families there and they all thought it was great. It looks very impressive and value for money, I'm very happy. I have and will recommend Sovereign to others.
