What do you love about working at IPA?
First of all I love the fact IPA have given me the opportunity to branch into different areas of play and through a range of ages from early childhood to teens. I love my job at the nursery, the kids are lovely and the staff are helpful at Paradise Park as well as on the adventure playgrounds.

What is your favourite childhood play memory?
I used to attend an adventure playground when I was young called Cape, I went for years and met so many people in the Islington area, where I developed my love for football. Being taken on trips such a Blackpool was one of many for a football tournament.
