Barnardo’s Mandala Therapy and Play Services are working on an exciting development with Taunton Deane Borough Council to update the play space at Farriers Green. We think it is really important to talk to the children and young people who will be using the space to help us influence the design process and get a space that suits their needs.
The first stage of this is process is to work with the school councils at West Monkton Primary School and Heathfield School. They will be taking part in a playful consultation process that will help us gather their opinions about the existing space; it will also provide lots of opportunities for them to think about what they want the space to feel like, and what they want to be able to do there. They will then take these ideas back into school for everyone to talk about and to come up with even more ideas.
The second stage is to involve the wider community. We also want you to bring ideas on how to improve your play space Farriers Green. So we are inviting you, your friends and family to tell us your thoughts. What do you think about the existing space? What would make it better? So, if you want to help us develop a fantastic play space that works for everyone please share your ideas!
If you have any questions, or have something you want to contribute, please contact Lisa Chell (Project Worker at Barnardo’s):
