Steve Danby

Managing Director

Close

As a family run firm my mum, dad and I have been blessed with the opportunity to employ and work with an amazing group of people.  It's with thanks to those people that Playscheme is what it is today.

Being Managing Director, my role is to oversee all departments of Playscheme and ensure that the company runs smoothly and progressively. 

We are lucky enough to be able to design, build and install play equipment for children and adults alike. Since starting Playscheme we've built everything from a balance beam right through to 9m Towers and fire breathing Viking boats.

John Danby

Chairman

Close

I started Playscheme with my son 25 years ago, working from my shed at home.  Designs were drawn by hand and most of the equipment was handmade. Over the years we have grown and expanded into the company we are today. My role has changed from doing practically everything to specialising in sales and the running of the company. I’ve recently handed over the role of Managing Director to Steve.
The things I enjoy most about my job are my customers and the creative element from making and designing to inspiring imaginations. As a father I have found it a privilege to work with my son, which most people don’t get to experience. I’m proud of our family firm and family values.

I joined in September 2020, after completing university. I really enjoy my role at Playscheme and what could be a more fun thing to design, than a playground? Every day I am learning from the fantastic team I have around me and we are committed to providing the most amazing, bespoke playgrounds for our clients.

I look forward to progressively creating more and more imaginative spaces at Playscheme, ones that both children and adults can enjoy alike!

Jeff Roberts

Technical Designer

Close

I work on technical documentation for the workshop and installation, providing a link between the design team and operations. My previous experience is in mechanical design for a variety of products including steel playground equipment, so this is an exciting opportunity to transfer my knowledge and 3D modelling skills to timber.

 Outside of work you’ll likely find me running in the fells. Just before starting at Playscheme I completed the Bob Graham Round, a challenge to summit 42 Lake District peaks and return to Keswick within 24 hours.
