Acorn Dell at Hever Castle: A day in pictures

We were recently invited to the opening of a new play area for children under 7 at Hever Castle, which took place yesterday.

It continues the castle theme, with castellations featuring in both the play area and the seating area at the top. The natural aesthetic of the playground is fantastic and encourages children to use their imagination.

JB Gill, formerly of JLS, who presents Down on the Farm on CBeebies was the guest of honour to cut the blue ribbon before the playground was opened. His wife Chloe and 3 year-old son Ace also attended. Of course, the new playground needed some little testers!  View Post
