BrookDen - The School Den


Feb 14 2014

  • brookburnpta -  - image 1



We are transforming a rough patch of woodland with builder’s rubble, into an exciting area for adventurous natural play in a woodland setting—to be used at play and lunchtimes.

The use of this space will be enhanced by training with lunch time organisers and key teaching staff, to ensure the whole school feels confident at how the space can be used creatively and safely. 

We will create a well managed woodland with trees to climb in and swing from; and build dens under; paths to run along; archways cut into the hedgerows to allow children to freely come and go; rustic fencing to separate the Den from the car park. And in the neighbouring grassed area  we will put in a sandpit, a mud kitchen and a series of living willow tepee dens and tunnels and an edible hedgerow. Please see the image


We need your help!

To transform the Den we need to raise £10,000.

We need lots of volunteers from 14 Feb, every Friday and some Saturdays - please refer to Charity Profile for details.

We need donations of garden equipment - please refer to Goods wanted for details.
