Geoffrey Osborne Ltd kindly lent Toffee Park Adventure Playground a skip in February. We got rid of a pile of really heavy bits and pieces including a huge metal water tank and a stack of rotten sleepers.

The driver of the skip truck told us that he didn’t usually help load skips but that he was going to make an exception. His reason? ‘These places saved my life when I was a kid’. He told us that he went to Camden Square Adventure Playground over 40 years ago and that his Playworkers had made a huge difference in his life.

He also taught us that if we shouted ‘Allyoop’, throwing stuff in the skip became much easier. Big thanks to the skip driver from all at Toffee Park Adventure Playground.

"It is so very sad to tell children they cannot climb a tree. It's like telling a kid not to run, not to sing, not to jump for joy, or (pardon the simile) like telling a dog not to bark or wag its tail. These are such natural behaviors, and yet these childlike instincts are under siege throughout our entire society."
