What a difference two weeks makes!

Morley South Children’s Centre, which is based at Seven Hills Primary School, has redeveloped its outside play provision from a spare piece of land to somewhere fun and safe for children 
to play.

Administration Assistant, Kim Heppenstall, said: “With the help of parents who regularly access our centre, local businesses such as Asda, Morrisons, Cucina and the Woodlands Hotel and a generous amount from the board of governors at Seven Hills Primary School, we have been able to transform our outside area.

“We were closed for almost two weeks while the company Play Sound Services Ltd carried out the work, which included a fantastic wooden teepee, artificial grass, mirrors and wind chimes.”

The centre held its grand opening last week during their Play and Stay session and invited parents, teachers from Seven Hills, Anne Kearsley, the Early Start Children’s Leader from Leeds City Council, and representatives from Fountain Primary School and Kaleidoscope Day Nursery in Morley.

And parent Fiona Jarrett had the honour of officially cutting the ribbon to open the new garden.

Kim said: “You can see how much the area has changed. We are really grateful for all the support that everyone has given us.”
