SNUG is proving to be incredibly successful in public spaces as well as schools.
Following a series of play consultation events, Hackney Council and Hackney Co-operative Developments decided to purchase SNUG for Gillett Square. A container was installed for storage and SNUG is brought out whenever children and adults want it - after school, at weekends and during holidays.
There is no formal supervision, just shoppers, stall-holders, coffee drinkers and parents keeping an out out, with toddlers, children, teenagers and adults all enjoying the space together.
This project is a remarkable example of public, private and voluntary sectors coming together to create a flexible and child-friendly environment in the heart of urban Hackney.
