‘We’ll be much safer’: Volunteers at Gedling Play Forum delighted by safety visor donation


Face visors have been donated to workers at a Gedling-based charity to help protect them from infection while providing a service to the local community.

The visors were donated to workers at Gedling Play Forum, which is based at the Wollaton Avenue Community Centre, by Trent Valley Labour Group and local councillor Nicki Brooks.

The Play Forum help encourage children’s play by offering a range of services which include a scrap store, community play activities and workshops.

The masks have arrived in time to offer extra protection to staff before they open their scrapstore again on Tuesday (August 4).

The scrapstore offers a range of recycled materials for creative play for small groups and schools

Most of the materials/goods were originally destined for landfill but have been donated by companies for creative play.

The Forum thanked Trent Valley Labour and Cllr Brooks in a tweet.

They wrote: “Thank you for supplying us with visors. We can reopen our Scrapstore on August 4 knowing our volunteers will be just that bit safer.”
