Trust school students open beach hut
PUBLISHED: 17:00 14 July 2016
After months of planning and tireless work, students opened a schools beach hut on Friday.
The hut has been filled with play and sports equipment for use by pupils from Weston Education Trust, made up of Bournville, Milton Park, Oldmixon, Walliscote and Windwhistle schools.
Cllr Felicity Baker cut a ribbon to declare the hut open, and children celebrated by using the hut’s play and sports equipment on the beach.
The idea stems from a meeting in November 2015, when trust schools celebrating Parliament Week decided to embark on a community project.
The children had endless ideas, and schools presented one each to MP John Penrose. The project was an opportunity for students to learn how decisions are made in parliament.
After securing the hut from North Somerset’s seafront manager Darren Fairchild, the students completed business proposals and marketing schemes to make the hut a success.
A trust spokesman said: “All schools have given such positive feedback and have thanked the school council for creating such a wonderful resource for all schools to enjoy.”
