We want to instal new play equipment, eg trim trails and place them on a rubberised surface which can be used all year round and not just in the summer months when the ground is dry. some of the play equipment on site at the moment is broken and dangerous and has had to be cordoned off. The older children have nothing to play on. We don't really know how much it is going to cost in total but it will probably be around the £10,000 mark. It will take us years to raise this amount ourselves as many of our children come from homes where state benefits are the only source of income. Our fundraising is painstakingly slow. The school grounds and facilities are used not only by the school but by Brownies, Beavers, Cubs, Scouts and Guides. We need a big boost from someone out there!
