A school playground has a new-look “Friendship Stop” thanks to the design talents of a pupil and a St Ives business.

Pupils at Wheatfields Primary in St Ives asked for a replacement stop – somewhere they go if they do not have someone to play with – after it had become worn.

Youngsters drew designs during National Anti-Bullying Week and school councillors chose a colourful entry by Year 6 pupil Polly Garner as the winner.

Her design was incorporated into a new, weather-resistant stop courtesy of John Moffett of Cameo Designs, who handed over the finished article during an assembly earlier this month.

Year 5 teacher Tai Aina said: “Our school buddies and councillors will see pupils at the stop and endeavour to help them to find someone to play with, or a game they can join in with.

“The school councillors and pupils of Wheatfields Primary School would like to say a big thank you to Mr Moffett and his company for taking the time to help us with this initiative.”
