ST Werburgh’s and St Columba’s Roman Catholic Primary School has had a facelift.
The PTA at the Hoole school organised a community day to help improve the look of the school and build community relations.
Chairwoman Kate Muddiman said: “This is the fourth community day I have arranged over the past two years and they have all been great fun. So many people get involved. This year, more than 150 people came – pupils, parents, siblings staff and grandparents, even the local fire crew came and helped to build some arbours at the front of school.
“We arranged for Lewis’ ice cream van to come along in the afternoon and we provided free refreshments for everyone throughout the day. People just turn up and ask to be given a job to do! I also asked Deva Cheerleaders to come along later in the afternoon and the kids loved it!”
Cheshire Police also attended offering a free security bike marking service for everyone who came on their bikes.
Jobs done on the day included: jet washing the decking and replacing old rope, artwork for the girls toilets, a refurbishment of the staff room, new bedding plants, painting of fences, litter picking, pencil sharpening and sorting of lost property.
