Cooking Up A Storm

Celebrating our 40th birthday, the children of Benachie Playgroup have been gifted a ‘legacy’ piece of play equipment to be enjoyed for years to come.

The Dunfermline Community Payback team were approached by Playgroup Manager, Annette Bond, to help design and build a dream ‘mud kitchen’.  The original idea was to enhance the outdoor play provision at the playgroup which is located in the centre of Dunfermline at Carnegie Hall.


Clive Allan, Community Payback Projects Officer, was “delighted” to help with the unusual request, and the team led by Stuart enthusiastically set about the task. Local timber merchants, MGM, kindly donated decking timber to the project, as well providing most of the materials.

The staff at Benachie, and more importantly the children, are thrilled with their bespoke new kitchen.  The playgroup have spaces available this term for children aged 2 ½ years.  For more information, please get in touch via the links on this website.
