Children in Stockport have received much needed new play equipment thanks to Equity Housing Group.

Freshfield Nursery School is a Local Authority Nursery School that was described as ‘outstanding’ in a recent Offsted report. As well as providing nursery education, with 78 children on roll, it provides vital support for parents and opportunities for families to meet each other in their Stay and Play groups.

One of the many ways that Freshfield helps children to learn, develop and progress is through educational and play activities. Funding from Equity Housing Group has provided much needed outdoor play equipment that is helping children to interact with each other, develop their communication skills and have fun together.

Head Teacher Linda Shaw said; “We are so grateful for Equity’s support. You only have to look at the smiles on the childrens’ faces to see what a difference this new equipment has made.”

Equity’s Head of Growth and Partnerships Kevin Williams recently visited the children to see how the money had been used. Kevin said: “We are delighted to be able to support this vital community resource. With the launch of our new foundation in January, we’re set to provide even more support to those who make a positive difference to communities. It’s great to see first-hand the impact that this support can have on peoples lives.”
