The new playground in Neef, donated by eibe and TÜV SÜD in cooperation with the magazine ELTERN was recently opened.
TÜV SÜD will celebrate its 150th anniversary this year. To duly celebrate this, they invited in March parents, communities, day care centers and youth groups to take part in a competition which could bring them and the children a brand new playground. Together with the magazine ELTERN, which celebrates its 50th anniversary this year, eibe offered equipment for two playgrounds, including construction and approval by TÜV SÜD, with a total value of 25,000 euro as prizes.
Almost two-month term and over 200 candidates: the selection was not easy. Whether participating for the rehabilitation of an old playground or for the installation of a new one, the attendees competed with lovingly-made images and photos.
The community Neef won one of the prizes, designed for a space of 13x10 meters. On behalf for their small community in Rhineland-Pfalz, the parents of 50 children already organized at the beginning of the year the campaign "Save the playground". The former playground was very old and, after the clean-up there was not much of it left. eibe brought a happy ending by replacing them with the ecorino play equipment Beta, playo double swing Condor and playo Pony Spring Rocker.
