PUPILS at a primary school have been reaping the rewards of the hard work of the Parents and Teachers Association.

St Augustine’s Primary School in Kesteven Road, Stamford, has had new outdoor play equipment installed which cost about £5,000. The school and the Parents and Teachers Association split the cost between them.

Chairman Wendy Hutchins of Churchill Road, Stamford, said: “The children absolutely love it. It’s proving to be really hard to get them to come home!

“The teachers have worked out a rota so that all of them have a chance to play on it.”

The money for the equipment was raised in just under a year through fetes, sales and even a pamper evening for parents.

It includes climbing and balancing equipment and a bridge that the children can go under and over.

Mrs Hutchins added: “This is a first for the school.

“Thank you for the support from the parents at the school. This would not have been possible without them.”
