Edisford Primary School, Clitheroe, has had a furniture overhaul thanks to a donation from property developer Taylor Wimpey in line with the end of its nearby Low Moor Gardens development.

The home builder has donated a range of items including desks, chairs and storage facilities from its old sales suite, for use in the classrooms and the school office.

Headmaster Mr Rob Pye said: “We are incredibly grateful for Taylor Wimpey’s continued support with yet another donation. In the past couple of years we have had a great deal of support from the team including £1,000 towards new play equipment, a donation towards new books in line with World Book Day, a donation of high-visibility wristbands for Walk to School Month, and now the furniture - so we can’t thank them enough.”

Mr Pye added: “The furniture has given us a great boost and has enabled us to replace some of our older items.”

Edisford Primary School on Edisford Road is just a short distance from Taylor Wimpey’s Ribble Meadows development.

Chloe Dunn, associate sales director at Taylor Wimpey Manchester, explained: “With Edisford Primary School neighbouring our development and quite a number of our younger residents attending the school we jumped at the chance to help them out with the furniture.”
