It’s #LoveParks Week, a national awareness week which is run by Keep Britain Tidy. This year the campaign’s 15th birthday is being held from the 23rd to 1st August.
#LoveParks Week is an annual event which aims to both improve and protect our nation’s parks. So for just one week in July, Keep Britain Tidy aim to get the whole nation to get down to their local park and share with us why they love their park so much.
This week celebrates so much more than just the spaces in which we spend our summers; it also celebrates communities and community spirit.
Parks are an asset to our communities, and to our lives. With a long list of health benefits for both children and adults. Not only does being outdoors benefit your physical health, but spending just a small amount of time outdoors, increases your emotional, and social well-being too.
On top of all of that there are so many fun activities which you can take part in at the park.
Whether it’s a family day out, a romantic stroll or eating your lunch away from the office, the park is the best place to go!
Where do Broxap fit in?
Here at Broxap we love to celebrate everything that comes with being outdoors. And what better place to start than by encouraging a fun and not to mention free day at the park? We supply street furniture which can be used to enhance your local park.
Make it fun for all the family, starting with a picnic area. Broxap design, manufacture and install a wide variety of picnic tables ranging from the traditional through to more modern and contemporary styles. That means we have a range of products which fit in no matter the aesthetic of the park.
In addition to the humble picnic bench, we also sell a range of products which can make your outdoor dining experience much more comfortable. For example, outdoor dining canopies which protect from both rain and UV rays.
Litter bins enable you to keep your surroundings cleaner; this ensures parks remain enjoyable for generations to come. As part of the national Keep Britain Tidy campaign, #LoveParks Week encourages you to ‘take your litter home,’. However with Broxap’s litter bins that is far from necessary!
We encourage the responsible disposal of your litter in order to allow your park to remain an asset to the community. We also encourage you to recycle! With our range of recycling bins, you can help keep your green spaces greener, for longer!
In addition to street furniture, Broxap’s playground equipment division, Hand Made Places, have a range of play equipment which can be used to enhance any park or green space.
Having outdoor play equipment in local parks allows for children to gain exercise by engaging in active outdoor play. And as well as the health benefits, trim trails and play units also provide children with hours of fun.
With all of these emotional, physical and mental benefits, don’t you think that we should join the #LoveParks campaign?
Let’s help to preserve these wonderful places for future generations.
