What Are We Waiting For?!

Some things in life are worth the wait- especially a Pentagon Playground!

The exact moment that the blackberries ripen to perfection, bursting with sweetness, turning an average autumn walk with the kids into a memorable day of simple surprises and purple fingers.

A tasty lasagne baked long enough in the oven that the sauce bubbles and oozes gratifyingly over the sides of the dish - worth every hungry moment waited!

A hard-earned win for your team, just when you thought it was never going to happen, brings greater glory. The success of a project you have long been fighting for leads to a more meaningful celebration. 

The satisfaction of something really good happening when you’ve had to work that little bit harder, or wait that little bit longer for it - but you’re so glad you did because it was absolutely worth it in the end.

Well - that’s just how we’re feeling right now. 

We’re really sorry that it’s taking us that little bit longer to deliver our playgrounds to you at the moment. Just like you, we like to get on and get things done - and done properly.

It’s frustrating - but we will get there, and we can assure you that a Pentagon playground is truly worth the wait.

We are currently just one of the many, hard-working organisations across the UK that are doing our best to navigate something of a supply-chain crisis.

That, coupled with the ongoing effects of disruption caused by the global pandemic, means that we’re experiencing a record amount of pent-up demand causing longer lead times for our installations than normal.

We know that schools are looking forward to getting their sense of ‘normality’ back, safely, after multiple lockdowns and school closures have been taking their toll on students and staff alike.

Maximising potentially-available outdoor spaces within the school grounds to create inspiring, engaging, exciting, challenging, interactive and curriculum-focused learning and play environments - with all the many wonderful health, developmental and educational benefits that being outdoors in the fresh air brings - features right up there on their list of priorities. And of course, it’s what we love to do best!

We understand the importance of getting children up, out and active every day. This is nothing new.

We want all young learners to have access to engaging and inspirational places to learn and play - opportunities to investigate, get hands-on, use their imaginations and explore their creative sides in welcoming, inclusive and sociable learning environments - and we’re brimming with ideas and resources to help schools and nurseries achieve this!

If you’re thinking about a new playground installation for 2022, it’s worth thinking ahead even if you’re not ready for on-site work to begin yet.

We’re now booking projects for installation next spring/summer so you have a bit more time to plan and make sure you get exactly the playground you want.
