THERE will be new play equipment awaiting pupils at a Stratford school next term.
Developer McCarthy and Stone has given the Friends of Bridgetown Primary School a £1,000 boost towards new and improved play ground equipment.
The school has been raising money to replace an old climbing frame and other outdoor equipment no longer suitable for use.
The housebuilder donated the final sum needed for a play unit, assault course and an additional area to use during lesson and playtimes, and for community groups to use out of school hours.
Deputy head Lisa Pinkerton said: “Supporting the emotional and physical wellbeing of our children is central to our school values. By having this new play area in place, our children can learn and play in an exciting, stimulating and safe environment. We are very grateful to McCarthy and Stone for their kind donation and look forward to the children’s reactions when the play area is ready for their return in September.”
