Sutcliffe Play grows Orchard range

Sutcliffe Play, one of the UK’s leading manufacturers of children’s playground equipment, is introducing innovative new additions to its wooden Orchard play equipment range for 2019.

“We’ve been hard at work developing exciting pieces for our popular Orchard range, which is specifically designed to enable inclusive play in a more natural environment,” says Andy Love from Sutcliffe Play.

“We’ve developed an in-depth understanding of inclusive play over the years, allowing us to design kit that’s functional, durable and fun for children from all walks of life. These new additions offer a combination of physically challenging activities that children of all ages and abilities can enjoy, complementing a more natural setting where required.”

The new equipment includes:

• Orchard Ship – this themed unit will make an impact in any play area. Complete with a central mast with a top sail, as well as Moon sail and Flying Jib, the fore deck includes a climbing wall, vertical rungs and binocular lookout. A rigging net also connects the deck to the aft deck; a larger platform with five sides which enables crawling or shuffling to reach the various inclusive elements.

• Hazel – the first unit in the Orchard range to be designed with inclusivity front of mind, this unit can be linked with a variety of other units in the range for a unique playground design. Inspired by nature, with 12 play activities, the central deck features five sides with a variety of access points for users of different abilities and inclinations.

Andy continues: “Every child should have equal access to opportunities to play side-by-side; our new additions to the Orchard range offer something for everyone, to stimulate the senses, for a unique play experience.”
