SOUTHMEAD Primary School has unveiled a brand new mural thanks to a generous donation of paint.

Staff at the school in Braunton set to work transforming the outdoor play area for the pupils after teacher Liz Wilde nominated the project for the Dulux Let’s Colour scheme.

Liz said: “We are extremely grateful for the generous paint donation, which has helped us turn what was a scruffy and uninspiring patio area into a bright, colourful outdoor play area for our pupils.

“We’ve had plenty of positive feedback from the children and their families already, with some saying the paintwork makes them feel proud to come to this school.
