Youngsters in Glemsford were counting down the end of the Easter holidays – so they could start enjoying their new playground equipment.
Break times at Glemsford Primary School in Lion Road have taken on an extra element of excitement with the introduction of a clatter bridge and balancing ropes.
Money for the equipment – costing £3,000 – was raised by the school’s parent and teacher group, The Friends of Glemsford School, with a little help from the Glemsford Angels, which stepped in to make up a £1,200 shortfall after learning about the project.
“Members of the Angels came along to one of our meetings and felt that the school was a worthy recipient of its help,” said Kelly Sorrell, from the Friends group.
“We are delighted the Angels chose to get involved.”
A grand opening of the play equipment was held before the Easter break, but pupils had to wait two weeks until they could properly put it to the test.
Jeni White, a member of the Angels, said: “It is very gratifying to see that this equipment will be put to good use by so many children.”
