Downham primary school youngsters are running in brand new kit from Taylor Wimpey

Children in the Clackclose Primary School Running Club will soon be on the starting line wearing new kit.

Housebuilder Taylor Wimpey has supplied the school in Downham Market with 23 running shirts for club members to wear in races ranging from fast-action sprints to long-distance challenges.

Sarah McDevitt, Head of PE at Clackclose Primary School, believes the sports tops will bring a sense of pride to the team she runs with Frances Rayner, a parent of two children at the school.

'The running club is becoming really popular and it has grown considerably over the last couple of years,' she said.

'This season we've got about 40 members and from that group, 23 are picked to represent the school in competitions, so it's great that Taylor Wimpey has provided us with these strips.
