A grant from the Big Lottery of £4,138 was awarded to pay for improvements to the children’s outdoor play area at St Paul’s Church Hall, which had previously been just an empty concrete corridor and due to its deep drain on one side had been deemed unsafe for the children to play in by the Cylch’s regulatory body CSSIW.

Since the work has now been finished, the space has been reassessed and given the go ahead for the children to play in it once more. The children and staff are looking forward to spending time outside in the new space and planting more vegetables in the new term.
