Prince’s Trust volunteers transform children’s playground
Prince’s Trust students from Cambridge Regional College have transformed a nursery school playground – building, painting and restoring to give the children a fun new play space.
The students answered a call for help from the Humpty Dumpty Pre-School in Oakington, where the outdoor area needed a complete facelift. Over several days, they worked hard on the site, building a willow wigwam, painting the play equipment and a playhouse, and installing stepping stones.
The project was the second one carried out at the pre-school by the Prince’s Trust volunteers – previously, they had worked on improving the children’s garden.
Their efforts were rounded off with a tea party at the nursery school to mark the completion of the work.
Jo Bastow, chairman of the pre-school committee, said the volunteers were a hit with the children.
She said: “Our outdoor space was looking well used by all the children and they have come in and done a wonderful job.
“We are really delighted with all the hard work they have done. They are an amazing group of people.”
