A place to play, peek and learn

Watch the world go by

The lucky children at Red Hen Nursery, Lincolnshire enjoy a range of outdoor activities to stimulate the senses and encourage learning. The latest addition to this award winning nursery is the Alfresco Arch Bird Hide.
 The Bird Hide sits proudly on the grounds at Red Hen Nursery, providing a sheltered hideaway for the children to watch the variety of birds and wildlife. Lucy Cooper, Deputy Manager at Red Hen said; “The Bird Hide has become a favourite place for our children at Red Hen. A place to watch the world go by, to sit and have a picnic or sing and tell stories with our friends”.

The Red Hen children aren't the only ones benefiting from our Bird Hides; Woodton Primary School in Norfolk are the proud owners of 'Hush Hides' for the children to enjoy at two of their school sites.

These Arc shaped Bird Hides cost £2,130 inc. vat and do not require planning permission as they are so mobile. The hides arrive flat packed for self assembly. Group builds can be arranged and are encouraged, as the children find it stimulating and fun to work together, building their own bird hide.  Click here to find out more.

New vehicle arc design for wide vehicles

Forget ugly tractor sheds and vehicle ports, look at this stunning vehicle shelter. No planning permission required, a truly mobile vehicle shelter.

The problem with wide vehicles is that once you have backed the vehicle into the Arc, how do you get out? Mark got around this problem by building an 'Arc Wing' on the side. This allows the driver to exit the vehicle arc at the back. Simple, effective, beautiful.

The customer says...
I just wanted to drop you a line to say how FABULOUS I think the Arc is! It is truly beyond my expectations! I think it looks perfect and Mark has done a smashing job. Please convey my thanks and appreciation to him. I can sleep soundly now that the tractor is cosy in her Arc - and just in time too, what with all this wintry weather!"

Local designer shields Lincoln retailers during lock down

Local product designer, Mark Panton has been working to help create a safer working environment for retailers in Lincoln and the surrounding area during the Covid-19 lockdown and help others to return to their businesses as the country moves forward.

Retailers who stay open to supply essential items to the public and businesses, need to provide measures to minimise the risk of spreading Covid-19 and avoid exposing themselves, their staff and their customers. This isn’t always easy and many are having to rely on masks, gloves and standard counter shields which don’t provide maximum protection when two metre distancing is not possible. Retailers often don’t have the required PPE to keep trading safely.  Mark explained, “Shops and retailers are providing a valuable service to their community during the lock-down period and require maximum protection for themselves and their customers.  I design and build bespoke timber frame structures from my workshop in Lincoln and knew that I could hel…
