Football club donates pitch to St Albans primary school

A St Albans primary school has scored a new pitch thanks to a local grassroots football team.
Harvesters FC donated four rolls of artificial turf to Skyswood Primary School after re-laying some of their own 3D pitches.
The Skyswood school field is out of bounds during the winter months as it becomes too wet and muddy, so the all-weather surfacing will make a massive difference in expanding the play space available.
Some of the extra garden space will be used to develop an outdoor reading area that has been designed by a group of Year 6 children.
Each roll weighed more than a tonne so Skyswood were delighted when Philip Grimble, the manager of Hertfordshire Tools Company phoned to offer their services as a community gesture.

Headteacher of Skyswood Bob Brindle said: “We’ll make great use of the turf. The school are really appreciative of Harvesters’ donation and the support that we received from HTC.
“It’ll certainly make a massive difference during those months when our school field is out of action.”
