Lidgard Shades Visit the Cottage Kindergarten

Mar 6, 2023 | News, Stories

Lidgard Shades Managing Director Adam Wilson was given a special afternoon tea when he visited the winners of our 2022 Get Spotted schools’ competition, The Cottage Kindergarten in Invercargill, recently.

Late last year, Adam headed down to do a site visit and award the students and teachers for their winning ‘Sun Smart Beach Party’ video.

Together, the staff and Adam found the perfect spot for the custom-designed shade sail worth almost $20,000 that Lidgard kindly sponsored and will install in the coming months.

Adam said that because the kindergarten currently has no outdoor shade to protect the kids and their teachers, Lidgard Shades is thrilled to be able to create a bespoke shade sail for Cottage Kindergarten to allow them to play safely outdoors.

“It has been so rewarding for the whole team to make a big difference for a school like this. It is so important that we have great sun-protective environments so kids can play safely every day.”

There is plenty of time to get schools you are involved with to start thinking about their entry for the Get Spotted Schools’ Competition, launching in October.
