Woodbury Salterton Primary School has a new bandstand thanks to Tesco Bag for Life cash
Woodbury Salterton Primary School has unveiled its new bandstand - paid for by a grant from a national supermarket.
The school received a £10,000 funding boost from Tesco as part of its Bags for Life initiative to help develop its currently all-concrete playground into a more biological learning space.
After consulting pupils from the school council, bosses decided to spend the cash on a friendship bench, mud kitchens, raised flower beds and a brand new bandstand.
The new structure, officially opened by pupils from last year’s school council, has already been used for ‘imaginative play’.
Executive headteacher for the Pebblebed Heath Federation – a partnership between Woodbury Salterton and Littleham primary schools – said: “We are delighted with the ideas that the school council had and, like all good things, they’re worth waiting for.
“Our thanks go to Tesco Bags for Life for the grant we received to make this possible.”
