Sustrans Grant for new playground shelters

shop_1139_07.jpgJust before February half term we applied for a grant from Sustrans so that we could put two shelters in our playground.  We are hoping that it will encourage more children to walk or cycle to school because there will be somewhere to shelter when they arrive in bad weather.  Children in P4 and P5 wrote some very persuasive letters and they must have been  effective because Sustrans decided to give us £2,500 towards our shelters.  A company called Timberline is putting up the shelters and we are hoping that they will be ready for next term.  Our Parent Council has also given some money towards the shelters.

  1. We have been promised another bike rack by East Lothian Council and are awaiting delivery. It will be situated alongside the shelter in the west playground.

  2. The shelters are great, but could we have some more bike racks please. There weren’t enough spaces on Friday.

  3. i’m really exited about the shelters, it means we won’t get wet while we wait for the bell!
