Our Clients Include...

“I chose AMV because of the wide range of products they had available and the competitive prices. I was impressed by their understanding of our needs and their willingness to help us achieve our goals.”

Andrew Williams – Deputy Headteacher

The playground development scheme has had a significant impact within Carlton Central Junior School. The playground has been transformed from a bleak, unattractive and boring environment into an exciting sport and play area with three distinct zones. This facilitates several types of structured play activities.

  • Team games (football, basketball, cricket, rounders, community use etc.)
  • Co-operative (taking turns, team building etc.)
  • Individual (skipping, targets, balls skills etc.)

Having access to these improved facilities for lunchtime and playtimes, as well as for PE/Sports lessons, has minimised behavioural issues. This has been confirmed by positive feedback from pupils, parents, staff and governors.

Anne Hall, Headteacher – Carlton Primary School

I am confident that within the next few months, once we have trained our play leaders (children) I shall be able to submit a very favourable report to our Governors. We have enjoyed doing business with you and I would certainly recommend your firm to other colleagues – in fact I have done so already!

Mr M P L Ledsham, Headteacher – Rice Lane Junior School

As part of our playground refurbishments we recently had some equipment installed by your company, this consisted of tennis nets, play tables, goal posts and various buddy benches.

I should like to commend the quality of the equipment and the ease with which it was installed. The team who were responsible for the installation worked hard and were aware of how to behave on school premises and the health and safety requirements. They were happy to work around playtime etc and everything went very smoothly.

Margaret McCulloch, Headteacher – St Paul’s C of E Junior School

On behalf of the staff and children of Bligh Infant School, I would like to thank you for the quality and the service of the playground equipment we have purchased from you. The quality is excellent and the service provided by your installers was most impressive. They were courteous and willing to adapt their working pattern around the school timetable.

The play equipment has provided the children with a valuable outside resource for free play at break times and lunch hours and has also improved behaviour.

Thank you once again, we would be happy to recommend your Company to others.”

Eileen Denton, Headteacher – Bligh Infants School

I must write to you and express my delight in the installation of our new fencing and activity areas.

Coming back from our summer break, the children were so excited and couldn’t wait to use the netball posts, football area and cricket stumps. It has transformed our playtimes and added to the play zones we already had.

The perimeter fencing on the tarmac area is also so attractive and really blends in with our shrubbery surrounds. We have had so many comments, from children and adults, about the flower motifs on the metal fencing which adds to the look of our KS2 playground.

The job you did was exactly as we discussed, carried out efficiently, there was not one bit of mess to clear up and we are all now enjoying the fruits of your labours and our money. A bargain considering the outcome.

Thanks again, we continue to enjoy calmer and active playtimes using the equipment.
