A supermarket scheme that aims to support communities has helped a primary school create a new play area.

In February Bonners C of E Primary School, in Maresfield, received a cheque for £12,000 from November’s Tesco Bags of Help fund.

Over the last month the children have watched the area change from a grass verge to a multi-activity space.

Both pupils at Bonners School and the Stepping Stones Pre-school will be able to use it.

Matt Ayling, Uckfield’s Tesco store manager, and Julie Foley, Tesco Community Champion, opened the play area last Thursday (March 16) with the school’s business manager Bridget Greenwood and some of its pupils.

When the youngsters were asked what they thought of their new play area they said that it was great to have exciting things to play with and the overall verdict was that they loved it.

The Bags of Help fund uses money generated through the 5p carrier bag charge to support projects across the country.
