Great Gidding Primary school applied for funding from the Big Lottery Fund and was successful.

The grant was used to install an outfoor gym for the children, which was installed on May 17.

The school are now looking at doing a grand opening to celebrate the outdoor gym.

Sharon Simpson, Office Manager at Great Gidding Primary School said:

“We are a tiny primary school, 56 children currently on roll so as you can imagine our funding is exceptionally tight. We are also limited on our outdoor space.

“Whilst we don’t have a playing field we do have a playground and some green areas so we are tying to utilise what we have to the max.”
