Fremington Community Primary and Nursery School has been awarded £10,000 to help create a new playground.

The school was one of 74 South West community projects to win a share of nearly £2million Big Lottery Fund cash.

Other local winners of the ‘Awards for All’ funding were Northam Town Council and The Clinton Hall in Merton, which both received £10,000 to install family-friendly fitness equipment.

Lyn Cole, Big Lottery Fund, England grant making director, said: “These projects are excellent examples of people working together to help others in their community including supporting them to attain the skills they need to realise their potential.”
