eibe and the Folkestone Folks

The Royal Military Canal begins just outside of Folkestone, passing the Cinque Ports of Hythe and Rye. It meanders its way through numerous villages, ensuring that one is never far from refreshments or a place to stay. There are also plenty of play opportunities around thanks to eibe Play and Shepway District Council.


eibe has worked with Shepway for a decade now, with the original eibe canal play structure still in place and much used. More recently, Parks Manager, Laura Pinkham, wanted to increase the play value on site, so approached eibe to propose some new ideas to reinvigorate the existing area.

Working to a modest budget of £9,000, eibe was able to install a Spiders Nest Net System and a Paso Double Trim trail course, all within one day. The client helped the quick turnaround by preparing the bark pit.

“As ever, eibe helped me find a solution to adding play value to the existing site. The equipment was good value for the budget I had and the equipment was installed on time. I am very pleased with the result.”
