Playtime! Community constable PC Adrian Denby tests the slide in Reinwood Infant and Nursery School’s new play area.
Pc Denby and friends of the school organised fundraising events, including a concert at Venn Street Arts Centre, towards the £4,270 area.
The school also received a £1,000 contribution from the BBC Children in Need appeal and help from Kirklees Council towards the cost of the area, which also has wooden stepping stones and a balancing bar on a base of wood chippings.
