A DIY store has donated £350 to a school to develop an outdoor learning space.

Children at Eastfield School, St Ives, will be able to make their own garden and vegetable plot thanks to B&Qs Better Neighbourhood Grant scheme.

The £350 grant from the store in St Neots was used for equipment for the school's new outdoor space including a shed, water butt and bark chippings.

Chris Jessop, community governor at the school, said: "The school plans to use the shed as a potting shed as well as a nature hide, enabling children to watch wildlife in the school garden and pond area nearby."
