Play equipment donation to school

CHILDREN at a primary school in Weston are set to get new playground equipment if a nearby shopping centre is demolished.

Developer McLaren Life has agreed to donate the equipment from Dolphin Square to Walliscote Primary School if its planned �35million revamp of the site gets the go-ahead.

The company wants to demolish the square and build a retail and leisure scheme.

Full health and safety checks will be carried out before the installation, which would take place next June.Pl

Alastair Bell, of McLaren Life, said: “We are delighted to be able to help the local school with this donation which we are sure will bring a lot of happiness to the pupils.”
