WEST Butterwick CoE Primary received a grant award of £500 after successfully applying to the parish council during the summer holidays.

The money will be used to buy resources for the new learning room extension at the school.

Councillor Miss Jackie Shadlock recently visited the School Council to hand over a cheque to members.

Headteacher Mrs Jo Buckle said: “The School Council thanked the parish council and also requested that they might meet up soon with the parish councillors to ask questions about their role in serving the community.

“It is wonderful to feel supported by our local community and we are really grateful for their generous grant allocation as this will help us to finish our new learning room extension off to a high standard.

“We are also looking forward to showing the parish councillors around our school in the near future and learning more about their valuable voluntary role in our local community.”
