Mud Kitchen

An outdoor kitchen has sprung up next to the Hilly Fields cafe. Launched as part of the Wild Play Day programme, paid for by a Big Lottery Changing Places grant and run by the Friends of Hilly Fields, it was built to encourage different kinds of children's play, beyond the confines of the playground. It will be used to stage a range of events in  future. Rachel from the Friends writes:

The mud kitchen is intended to stay on site and has had lots of positive feedback. We have a heavier top on order which we hope will be attached to logs, so not as easily movable. They couldn't make the heavier one in time (as it is non standard). The two thinner ones will then go to Chelwood [nursery].
