Parents and pupils at a Pill primary school have spent time refurbishing its playground.
The Parent Teacher Association (PTA) at Crockerne Primary School, in Westward Drive, held a series of DIY days during the Easter holiday as part of its project to improve the key stage two pupils’ outside play area.
A spokesman for the PTA said: “Some local residents and Lodway Hardware have donated some materials for the project.
“The PTA has bought the rest with money from its fundraising.
“We would like our school to be a bright and colourful environment for our children.

“Unfortunately, as with all other schools, ours has little money especially for the non-essentials.
“So it is up to the PTA to get these things done.”
