A Cramlington school has completed the first phase of its playground refurbishment.

Hillcrest School is raising funds to provide students with a stimulating outdoor environment, where they can find ways of using physical activity to express themselves, and enjoy the challenges and rewards of exercise.

Phase one of the refurbishment was officially opened on Friday, with an outdoor fitness trail and a large climbing and activity frame, a large outdoor chalkboard and an outdoor chess table.

Any businesses who can help the school move onto the next phase of the development should call Susan on (01670) 713632 or email
