Huge £19,000 play tower installed at Southam school

THERE will be both work and lots of play for youngsters at a Southam primary school.

A new play tower – costing over £19,000 – was installed at St James Primary School thanks to the Parent Teacher and Friends Association (PTFA), Southam Town Council, Southam Lions and a £10,000 grant from the National Lottery Fund.

The PTFA held many fundraising events over the past two years, including Christmas fairs, a summer fair, a charity fashion show from Daisy B’s Boutique and a charity quiz and curry night.

Headteacher Phyllis King said: “We are grateful to everyone who supported this project.

“The children enjoy challenging themselves to climb up the towers and over the obstacles which helps them to build their confidence to take risks and develop their imaginative play.”
