The schoolchildren had been asked what they would like to see for the town. The racks and seats formed part of their ideas and with support from the Town Council the facilities that they chose have been installed.Two colourful cycle stands and a seating area are now in place for the use and enjoyment of all. The hoops came from the town centre when the Square was improved, with penny farthing racks taking their place*. The seats are reconstructed from those saved from the The Lynch and have been designed to fit in with the three trees in the corner of the play area. Town Mayor Cllr Barry Jackman and Mayoress Sandra Jackman, praised the school and the children for their involvement in the community project which is a great asset to the area.
Their sterling work is a reminder that the young people of the town have such an important part to play in both its present and in its future.
