A primary school in Moulton is celebrating after a donation from local homebuilder, David Wilson Homes, enabled it to transform a derelict swimming pool into an exciting new play area for its pupils.

The homebuilder donated £3,000 in funding to Moulton Primary School to help renovate its old swimming pool, which over time had become overgrown and dilapidated, eventually being deemed unusable by the children.

With David Wilson Homes’ contribution, the school was able to remove the old brick wall, clear the shrubbery, repair the drainage, and enclose the area, transforming it into an open theatre-styled space, with additional play equipment to help promote outdoor learning activities.

Debbie Coates, business manager at Moulton Primary School, said: “We are really excited that renovations to our play area are now complete. The financial support which David Wilson Homes has given us has helped us to convert an unusable, derelict place into an open, interactive play area for our pupils to enjoy.

“This work is part of our ongoing project to create an outdoor learning space for our pupils and we are extremely grateful for the generous donation from David Wilson Homes.”

Jackie Day, sales director at David Wilson Homes South Midlands, added: “As well as building homes we aim to support the communities at our developments and we believe that contributing to local school projects is a huge part of this.

“We are really pleased that work has now been completed on the play area and we hope it will be enjoyed for many years to come.”
