YOUNGSTERS have some new play equipment thanks to the hard work of parents and staff at a school.
The children at All Saints Infants’ School, in Matlock, can look forward to play time even more thanks to the new equipment.
The school’s Parent and Friends Association (PFA) have been fund–raising for three years pay for the items, which cost in excess of £10,000.
They organised events such as spring fairs, Easter eggstravaganzas, discos and summer barbecues.
Neil Beeson, chairman of the PFA, said: “The staff, parents and pupils have been very patient and the long awaited play equipment was installed last week and officially opened by the former Mayor of Matlock, Cllr Barry Hopkinson, during the spring fair.
“Over £10,000 has been raised to pay for play equipment spread over two play grounds including a gazova, trim trail and Midline Maxiplay featured in the picture. The PFA express their thanks to all the parents, staff, pupils and local businesses who have supported this project.”
