Staff and pupils at St Peter’s School, Budleigh, can now have their temperartures easily checked - thanks to the Lions of Budleigh stepping in to pay for three laser thermometers.

Not only can everyone be checked if they display symptoms, but if there is an outbreak, staff can stand at the school gate and easily check pupils when they enter school for signs of infection.

St Peter’s headteacher Steve Hitchcock said: !We are really grateful for the Lions’ donation during these tricky times.”

Pictured with Mr Hitchcock is Evelyn Hitchcock, and Lion Alan Lowe with Bradley Lowe - they choose their relatives for social distancing reasons... they passed the temperature check too!
