Education Shelter

The Friends and their 833 Lottery Club have been pleased to help finance a new shelter for Lucy and her team to use during their many children’s education days. “It’s so helpful,” Lucy told us, “for really hot, sunny days or for when we have a light shower. It means we can stay outside as much as possible, which is why the children are coming here in the first place.”

It is situated next to the path down to the Discovery Centre.

The shelter was designed by Joseph Williams and is made of sustainable eco-friendly materials including bamboo for the uprights and a stretchable fabric awning. The awning can be taken down and packed away easily when not in use, which makes the shelter almost invisible.

The Friends shared the cost of the shelter with the 833 Lottery, and Lucy and her team also contributed to it. We hope that lots of classes will be glad of its shade and shelter during our increasingly hot summers.
