Work has begun on an outdoor activity zone at a pre-school being provided free by a DIY store.

Youngsters at Hail Weston Pre-School will be able to take part in bird watching and seed planting when volunteers from the B&Q store in St Neots have finished improvements to their play area.

The store is providing volunteers and funding as part of the B&Q National Better Neighbour Scheme.

An enclosed area will be created at the front of Hail Weston Village Hall where the pre-school classes are held and a wooden bench, planters, bird tables and a water butt will be at the back. The large metal toy storage cabin will be given a protective coat of paint and large blackboards will be put up for the children to chalk on.

Parents and the school committee have also been involved in the project by cutting down large shrubs and weeding around the hall in preparation.

* B&Q staff members Frank Thorpe, Margaret Ends and Lewis Hall arejoined by Alex, Tom and Jade from Hail Weston Pre-School.
