WHITWELL children can enjoy the fresh air as they learn, thanks to a new outdoor classroom at their school.
Alison Godley, a parent governor at Whitwell Primary School, officially opened the outdoor classroom recently surrounded by her family.
Alison did a sponsored walk in 2010, trekking the coast to coast route of 196 miles.
And after collecting the money, getting planning permission and contracting someone to build it, it is finally ready for use.
A school spokesman said: “This spring and summer will be the first full terms when the children will make full use of the outdoor classroom. We can’t thank Alison enough.”
