Clevedon primary school pupils have been making the most out of new playground equipment worth thousands of pounds.
The Friends of St Nicholas Chantry Primary School has spent £2,000 on equipment and new markings to make playtimes more enjoyable for children and encourage more exercise.
The group raised the money by holding events including quiz nights, discos, a Christmas fair and fun run.
Headteacher Peter Treasure-Smith says the equipment has already been well-used.
He said: “This playground equipment is incredibly popular.
