News update from Melanie, the chair of the PTA at Wickhambreaux School, by WB Tony Eldridge.
She is pleased to report that just before lockdown, she, contractors and parents put our donations to very good use and she has now sent several photos.
They have now completed 80% of the planned work. And in addition to replacing the (condemned as unsafe) playground safe/soft surface, and climbing frame & activity house, they have also been able to acquire an ergonomic den, a unique nature play hideaway.
Our donation has also enabled them to buy storage units for the back and the front of the school, to enable the children to look after and access their toys. These new tidied areas have inspired the parents to donate wooden palettes so that on these palettes creative parents could make things like Lego boards for the children to use outdoors and ‘outdoor music making areas’.
This has been a big project for our Lodge 31. Moved by their story, we gave them £6000 with an additional contribution of £250 from the Masonic Cornwallis Trust.
We are now looking forward to when things eventually get back to normal, to an on-site celebration with PTA members and staff!
EDITOR: Well done Tony and thanks for the update!
