A whole world of exciting adventure has opened up for children at a village school.

After many years of dedicated fundraising new outdoor play equipment has been installed at Colby primary.

Pupils created ideas for the play area which features a revolving log, stilt walk, zigzag beams, rope walks, hurdles and parallel bars.

The Friends of Colby School spent many years fundraising were helped by a cash boost from EDP Community Chest campaign.

Secretary Sarah Cox said: 'The children are absolutely delighted to have all this new play equipment to liven up their break times, and to keep them fit and active.'
