Sheltering the community at the Brockenhurst MUGA

Have you heard of a MUGA? The 'Multi Use Gaming Area'. An area dedicated to allowing the local community to socialise, play and have fun.

Brockenhurst Village Trust in the New Forest, worked hard to build a MUGA for their community to enjoy. After the ground works, fencing and leisure equipment, they decided they needed a shelter on hand for adverse weather and shade.
Lynsey Davis, BVT MUGA Leader said:

"Living in the New Forest we wanted something that would fit in with the local surroundings for our shelter. The MUGA and Scout Hut which is within the grounds where the shelter is sited are both wooden clad and wooden bound. We luckily found Alfesco Arc who supplied us with a wooden arc strong enough to house cattle, but beautiful enough to complement our MUGA. The Picnic Arc fits in perfectly with our requirements and is very much admired. The assembly was simple and straight forward."

Lynsey continues; "Our community couldn’t be happier with its Picnic Arc! They sit under the arc on the picnic table to chat, have a drink, picnic or just take time out away from the elements."

"The village preschool use the shelter daily when they go to the MUGA for their morning exercise. They love the way they can see out of both sides but that they can be protected too. “It’s a bit like being in a cave but with two ways in!”

"The customer service from Alfresco Arch has been great and the installation was efficient, on time and professional. We’re very happy with our product. "

Our range of picnic arcs, bird hides and outdoor classrooms provide cost effective, unique and beautiful solutions for councils, schools and community groups. For more information visit or email
