Summerfield Homes help Danesfield pupils make the most of their outdoor gym

South West housebuilder Summerfield Homes have handed over a cheque to Danesfield School, in Williton, to help pupils make the most of their outdoor gym, even in wet weather.

Summerfield Homes donated £500 towards the new matting to go around the outdoor equipment and is pleased to invest back into the local community, where they are currently active on their Liddymore Park development in the neighbouring town of Watchet.

The outdoor equipment was opened in the summer of 2022 by the then captain of Somerset County Cricket Club, Tom Abell; however, the gym is less popular with the school’s 350 pupils aged nine to 13 when the ground is wet.

Headteacher, David McGrath, said: “The school is grateful for the money towards the matting which will be installed by caretaker Ray Griffiths and make the use of the gym more appealing in periods of bad weather. I am pleased that Summerfield Homes are keen to support the communities in which they are building new homes.”

Summerfield’s Divisional Director, Sales and Marketing, Philip Morgan said: “It was a pleasure to visit the school which has been part of the Williton, Watchet and Washford communities for generations. The business is pleased to provide a donation towards something that would benefit the pupils and encourage outdoor activities.”
