YOUNG pupils at Monkshouse Primary School’s nursery can play outdoors whatever the weather now they have a new canopy.

Parents, staff and children have spent the last 18 months fundraising for the cover through a variety of events including sponsored walks and cake stalls.

They have also had a helping hand from the Lincolnshire Co-operative, which donated £500, and Spalding Lions, which put forward £250.

Last week, nursery children sang songs to parents and visitors to celebrate its official opening.

Nursery teacher Nicky Clarke said: “The children will be able to play inside and out all day. When we have a sunny day the canopy will also provide shade for them. They can be completely under cover.”
