Phase 1 of Playground Improvements Now Fully Funded
Thanks to a grant of £3,750 from Gatwick Airport Community Trust, we are delighted to announce that phase 1 of the playground improvement project is now fully funded!
Work has already commenced on clearing trees and shrubs around the area due to be improved, and low hanging branches of the oak tree have been removed. The installation of weatherproof surfacing, benches and play equipment will take place in November.
A HUGE boost to our playground fundraising!
The PTA are delighted to announce that Southover Manor Trust have awarded us a grant of £14,800 towards our playground improvement project!
This grant will go a long way to help us realise our plans for phase 1 of the project, to improve the 'mud patch' opposite the Elemental Arena with a weatherproof surface and seating.
If you go down in the woods today...
We always strive to keep the outdoor learning areas stocked with engaging equipment for the children to use during their sessions outside the classroom.
Over recent months, we have added toadstool tables and stools (upcycled from cable reels), water walls and scales, and a set of mud kitchens.
Thanks to the Smith and Courtney families for their dedication and ingenuity, all the volunteers who have helped out with making and installing, to Jewson for the donation of materials for the kitchens, and the monetary donation from The Star, Lingfield, that made it all possible.
