Around the camp fire

Bespoke recycled 3 slat seat

TDP were delighted to supply new recycled plastic outdoor furniture to Pax Tor (meaning Peace Hill), a site owned by the Guiding movement and utilised by Brownies as a holiday house. Pax Tor was built in the 1920’s as a timber structure was acquired by the Guiding movement in 1960. Since then many improvements and modernisation have been undertaken as funds allow.  The outdoor space is set amongst the most beautiful woodland, but due to this the existing furniture had rotted. TDP were able to offer a modern, long lasting alternative to the now unusable furniture, but to maintain a sympathetic look amongst the trees and shrubs. As TDP handcraft their furniture to order, committee members of the Brownie group were able to visit our showroom and pick the best of two existing products to make a bespoke, fitting bench to suit the age range of the Brownies visiting Pax Tor, and compliment the surroundings. Part of the design was taken from the Toucan and part from the Trail benches. The new benches were sited around the area of the camp fire. A Springbank picnic table was also sited at Pax Tor on the raised patio area just outside the house itself. This has great views of the grounds surrounding Pax Tor. As the environment here is shadowed with large trees and can therefore  get damp, by selecting furniture made from recycled plastic, it will not rot, warp or splinter like traditional timber, and most of all will last for years to come without the need for painting or staining. Being made from solid plastic waste that would have been destined for UK landfill, water cannot ingress into the material either, so in wet weather, the surface can simply be wiped with a dry cloth and the seats and picnic table can be used.
