"Just wanted to drop you a note to say a big thank you for the recent works completed at our school. The new ‘quiet’ area looks amazing. Our gardening club have already filled the planters and the children are enjoying the seating and the stage. We had an outdoor assembly to ‘formally’ open the area including a ribbon cutting ceremony".

"You've done it again! Thank you so much for our new outdoor learning environment - it is absolutely perfect. The children have been exploring it today and have loved everything about it".
"Yet again the guys who completed the work were courteous and understanding. They went above and beyond to help us finish the project - I can't commend them highly enough".
Jo Potts, Headteacher - Barnburgh Primary School
"Thank you for our Mud Kitchen and Sandpit. It is excellent quality and the service you provided was superb. It was lovely to meet you all at the Lincolnshire show and listen to you talk about the amazing work you do for local schools and nurseries. You are all very passionate at what you are selling and we would be happy to buy from you again in the future. Thanks again".
Can I just pass on our huge thanks to your team of guys who have been on site this week.
What a pleasure it has been having them here - they have been so professional and amenable and have gone above and beyond our expectations!
Already we can't wait for the next phase of our Newby Leisure experience!
We loved ordering online. So easy and quick.
Brilliant service as ever.
Can I just express my thanks and gratitude to you and your team for making our area a welcoming and accessible one now. It looks fantastic and I am just delighted with it. They have made a unused dark and damp area into a lovely and welcoming area for the children to play in.
Many, many thanks.
Nina Brannon, Woodlands Primary School, Doncaster.
“Our outdoor reception area has now been transformed. Neil and his team have provided the school with a first class service from beginning to end. From the initial meeting where he patiently listened to my vision for our children and then creatively put that vision into a design. Our vision for our youngest children has now become reality”.
Elaine Thomas, School Business Manager, Market Deeping CP School.
Once again you have done and amazing job on our outside area.
We have used you in the past, now in the present - I'm sure we'll use you in the future!
Thanks to Kev (site foreman) and his team for all their hardwork!
Judy Carter, School Business Manager, St Andrew's CofE Primary School.
On behalf of the pupils and staff at St Andrew’s, I would just like to say what a superb job your team have done with our Amphitheatre.
They have been extremely pleasant, obliging, tidy – even in the rain on Monday!
A great job - thanks very much!
Having attended a course at The Early Excellence Centre in Huddersfield about outdoor learning we decided that we would like to build a 'learning village' for pupils in Key Stage 1, to aid transition and further enhance our curriculum. This was a new idea which required a great deal of research and creativity. We contacted Newby Leisure, who had successfully completed a range of outdoor projects at Macaulay over a period of many years and although we obtained estimates from other companies we felt that they provided the best value. Neil gave excellent advice on design, materials and equipment, encouraging us to 'think outside the box', and demonstrating great patience when we modified the plan numerous times. The workmen were extremely professional and took time to talk to the children and answer their many questions! The work was completed to a high standard, with great attention to detail and both staff and children are delighted with the finished result.
Very good products, excellent personnel, very professional and personal. Many thanks to the whole team!
Just wanted to express my thanks and delight at the work done at our school during the holiday. Fantastic job. Thanks to the whole team. The children's faces were a picture this morning! I will certainly be recommending you if anyone is asking!
We are absolutley delighted with the success of our new outdoor learning area for the children in Foundation Stage and Year 1. The response of the children and staff alike has been incredible with the children in particular being so enthsiastic in using this high-quality, bespoke and learning-centred physical environment. The standard of consultation, planning, design and construction was exemplary and the customer service element was second to none. No job is too small and no question went unanswered; every step of the way we were well-advised and supported. Many thanks to Neil and the whole team at Newby Leisure for a fantastic working relationship and all-round experience.
The professionalism of all staff at Newby Leisure is second to non. They are always reliable, high quality, fair prices, friendly, efficient, helpful and can solve problems by thinking outside the box.
We are thrilled with our new outside area, as are the staff, children, parents & governors. The developments have improved the learning environment for the children, fantastic result, Thank you.
The ability of Newby Leisure to work with Welholme staff on design is a huge benefit.
Due to the staff, equipment and installation, we as an organisation feel the company is excellent in the way they deliver the service from beginning to end. We would not hesitate in either using the company in the future, or in recommending them to other organisations.
The whole experience of Newby Leisure making over our outdoor area has been huge. It has given us all a real lift. The children are very excited and love it. Many Thanks.
My name is Cally Stockwell, and I am writing on behalf of St Thomas' CE Primary School. The Reception children would like to say a huge thank you for your kind donation that your company has made through the EYFS Project. The children are really enjoying the new construction and water play resources in particular. We are currently in the process of developing our outdoor area massively and we look forward to ordering some more resources from you in the future.
You have played a central part in our school's outside improvements for the last six years. During this period, you have worked closely with us to make sure that we received just what we wanted.
The Foundation Stage outside classrooms were redesigned to match the needs of this age group of children and at our recently Ofsted inspection (July 11) were stated to be "excellent outside environments". We agree, as do the children.
The "Learning Lodge" was erected at Easter 2011 providing us with additional classroom space which the children and staff love to be in, in fact it is difficult to get people back to the classrooms.
The latest improvement is a fantastic climbing frame described by the children as "awesome"! It provides chalIenge and enjoyment to all that use it and has become a landmark of the school.
Your team of workers are always polite and happy to help. This was particularly evident with the erection of the climbing frame. Your staff spent time with the children showing them pictures of what it would look like, were very happy to explain what they were doing, provided spot on health and safety support and didn't mind being the focus of attention every playtime and lunchtime. It provided a very exciting week for the children culminating in the handover of the frame to the children.
I am sure that we will continue to work together in the future.
Hi, we have just added some pictures of our lovely new outdoor area onto our facebook page. Thank you very much!! We all love it, love from all at Butterflies x x
We bought our outdoor play from you in 2001 when we first opened - still very popular, it has certainly stood the test of time and thousands of little feet and hands!!
We will recommend your services to our cluster of schools and business managers.
The level of service your company gave from start to finish was excellent. The Newby Leisure team on site were efficient and hardworking. The equipment and installation is of a very high standard and quality. It was a pleasure working with a company who give a high service level. Thank you.
