Bonnyrigg-based construction firm Crummock has transformed a play area for children with additional support needs at a local primary school.

The area at Burnbrae Primary is now an inspirational learning space complete with plants, synthetic grass and play features including tyres, piping and cones.

Education spokesman Councillor Bob Constable said: “I understand this has been a real team effort with teachers from the school approaching Crummock to ask for help as the play area was pretty basic and often waterlogged. What the school has now though is a fantastic space. I’m sure when the sun shines it will be hard to get the children to come back into the classroom as the space is so much fun.

“Many thanks to all the staff and also to David Duncan, the marketing and business development manager at Crummock, who produced a plan with Lee Kennedy, a Crummock civil engineering manager.”

The Crummock squad secured donations of some of the materials needed to help broaden the original scope of the works from Thistles, Stuart Angus and R&B Nursery. Materials and employee time were provided by Crummock, Allsports Construction and Maintenance Limited, and the other material suppliers, free of charge to the school.
