LOCAL school children are enjoying a new sandpit and play area thanks to St. Modwen, the owners and developers of Kirkby Town Centre.
Kirkby Church of England Primary School has been chosen by St. Modwen as their local school to support.
To celebrate this, a sand play pit has been donated and installed into the school’s nursery. The sandpit has been fitted with a roof allowing children between the ages of three and four to play in all year round.
Elaine Parr, Extended Services Manager at Kirkby Church of England Primary School, said: “We would like to thank Kirkby Town Centre and St. Modwen for this amazing new play area. The builders worked tirelessly to fit the sandpit and we’re incredibly grateful. It has already made a huge difference to the learning experience of all the children.”
Town Centre Manager Mike Matthews, who organised for the sandpit to be installed, said: “Kirkby Church of England Primary School is an integral part of the local community and we are looking forward to further establishing our official sponsorship with the school. We hope the children will enjoy the sandpit for many years to come and as the town of Kirkby continues to evolve and progress.”
