With constant publicity about the high obesity rate amongst our nation's youth, we know how important it is for children to be active to improve their health and physical wellbeing. What is often overlooked, however, is the importance of exercise in children's development and learning. While playtime might seem like a fun part of the day for children and a chance to escape the classroom, it is in fact, a vital part of the educational process.

Wicksteed Playgrounds will feature in the BBC1 programme, Watchdog Testhouse on 4th March at 11.45am. Our Sales Director, Stuart Wetherell discusses the history of Wicksteed, our first swings & slides and how we make playground equipment safe for children today. This all takes place in our factory in Kettering, where Wicksteed has produced playground equipment for over 90 years!
