Chairman of the Friends, Matt Masters, said the aim was the build a new play area that could be used by pupils at the school as well as community groups.

“We have worked with specialist provider of these services to help develop our vision of the play area and the playground to help turn this into an actual plan to work towards,” he said.

“The cost to purchase and install the vision we have created is £4,822.38 and for the small group of volunteers that we are with limited resources, it would take us a significant amount of time, possible a few years to be able to raise enough funds to pay for such a vision.

“We really want to make it a reality on top of all the other work that we do support the 230 pupils of the school and the children from the local community that use the school for various groups such as Brownies,” he added.
