10 Sep Re-opening of our refurbished Nursery Playground
On Friday 7th September, Coram’s Fields and the London Taxi Drivers Charity for Children (LTCFC) came together to re-open our recently refurbished nursery playground, complete with brand new play equipment.
Coram’s Fields has enjoyed a long association with the LTCFC, having previously received funding towards our play sandpits some years ago. We were thrilled that in their 90th year, they awarded Coram’s Fields a landmark grant of £18,902 towards the redevelopment of the nursery’s outdoor play area. This generous grant has funded the refurbishment work in its entirety, enabling us to resurface the area; apply interactive, fun designs; and install educational, stimulating play equipment. In the presence of the Mayor of Camden, Councillor Jenny Headlam-Wells, this wonderful space was reopened as The William Tyzack BEM Nursery Playground, in honour of the LTCFC’s Honorary Life President, with the ribbon being cut by William’s daughter, Belinda. The nursery children were then officially welcomed into their new playground to get down to the important business of play!
Our nursery is a beloved resource in the local community, providing full-day childcare for up to 36 children aged 2-5 years old every year. Our aim is to give each child the very best start in life. While the quality of the educational offer delivered by our nursery team is of a high standard, funding pressures have meant that the facilities and play equipment had become worn through age and wear and tear, particularly the nursery’s outdoor play area.
We are exceptionally grateful to the LTCFC for their renewed generous support and are delighted to see The William Tyzack BEM Nursery Playground officially opened. This support will benefit local children now and for many years to come.
