A SCHOOL garden is to get a £4,000 makeover.
Pupils at Berry Brow Infant and Nursery School have just been told they have received the cash from the Supergrounds programme.
It will mean that the school's Birthday Garden - created in 2000 as part of its 125th anniversary celebrations - will be turned into a place for learning and fun.
Children will have their say on what features they want the garden to include.
But a storytelling chair and a bridge with a crocodile underneath are among the ideas already suggested.
Acting headteacher Michelle Moore said: "With Supergrounds support we will be able to provide opportunities for children to be involved in creative play outdoors.
"We are really excited about working with Supergrounds to ensure our garden makes a real difference to the pupils' lives."
The Supergrounds programme was launched in September, 2004, by the Royal Bank of Scotland.
The £3m project aims to improve 450 primary school playgrounds over three years.
Berry Brow became involved with the scheme through Andrew Bray, from the bank, who is chairman of governors at the school.
He said: "I know how difficult it is for schools to raise funds.
"This scheme seemed an ideal way for us to improve the school grounds to help the children develop.
"When you give up your spare time to support the development of the Birthday Garden at the school it's great that the bank is willing to give you its support."
