HAGS have recently completed a recreational park to create an active play and social space for children. The play area has been named the Phillip Harvey Playing Field after the generous donation of land for a park by Philip Harvey around 70 years ago.

Town and Parish Councils
Outdoor spaces have proven to be very important for young people and families providing many benefits. They can bring communities together, prevent and reduce anti-social behaviour, increase accessibility and inclusivity, and also cater for a greater diversity within communities.

How can HAGS help?
We provide a free consultation service
Spending time at the start of the project, getting everyone “on board” is vital to the success of the project, so we recommend an initial consultation workshop with all interested parties to assist with the community engagement.
We offer a funding solution
We can support you here with an introduction to a dedicated independent specialist that has a track record of raising funds for Schools, Parish Councils and Community Groups.
We offer a free design service
As part of the consultation process, we will produce several draft designs with plan views and 3D visuals until we finally reach consensus to a final design that everyone is happy with. Our designs are free meaning that you do not have to worry about or incur any ‘up-front’ costs for these services.
One stop shop
We ensure that your play area will be fully installed to the latest European Safety standards, and completed to a high quality. This gives you peace of mind that your play area is safe and ready to use.
Inspection and Maintenance Services
If the responsibility for keeping a safe and secure playground rests with you and not the local authority, HAGS offer peace of mind through regular operational and annual inspections of the play space plus repairs if deemed necessary. If capital budget is limited we can make your money go further by full or part playground refurbishments to bring tired play areas back to life.
Monkey bars, swings and a slide were on our wish-list, but top of the suggestions was a zip wire! The new equipment has been a huge boost for the village.
