Yate primary school pupils delighted with new play equipment
A YATE primary school which lost its play equipment in a blaze is celebrating playtime again thanks to a donation from a local business.
Pupils at St Mary's finished lessons early for the official unveiling of new outdoor play equipment.
The new play area has been donated by Chipping Sodbury-based business Ian Williams, which wanted to help the school after hearing about the devastating fire in February.
Extensive damage was caused to the school, a Wendy house was wrecked and a large number of outdoor toys had to be thrown away.

Now Ian Williams, a national property services company which works in the education sector as well as with public and private sector clients, has donated play equipment, including a wobbly tyre bridge, swinging log crossing and hammock net.
Mike Turner, of Ian Williams, said: "St Mary's is located close to our head office. When we heard about the fire and the devastating impact it had on the school and the young children we wanted to find a way to help.
"We decided that we would be able to help create a new adventure trail for the school."
Jackie Berry, school business manager at St Mary's, said: "The children have been excited about getting their play area back. We can't thank Ian Williams enough for their generosity."
