The current play area for Park House School in Thorney is showing signs of age. This year pupils have been busy raising funds for a sensory den and a basket swing (which is easier for the pupils to get out of than a normal swing) with a variety of fundraising activities. However, they are still far from their £5,000 target. School business manager Luke Rich - pictured with Kieran Venters La Freniere, Ricardo Dias, and Joshua Beattie - said: “Regular physical activity helps them concentrate better when they are in class and helps them achieve better results.” To donate, visit: https://www.justgiving.com/crowdfunding/parkhouseschool.
