A borough toddler group has been given a financial boost thanks to a charitable organisation.

Jane Greenfield and Carol Shields who manage Whitley Lodge Under Fives Community Group, received £200 from the Whitley Bay Rotary Club.

The cash, which was donated by immediate past President David Wilkinson and club members recently, has now been used to install two new signs to the school premises.

Jane said: “The two new signs look great – one will welcome visitors to the entrance and the other, which is situated in the playground, will help to stimulate the children’s outside environment, as it has particular reference to mathematics’’.

Past President David added: “I was delighted to visit the school once again and look forward to the day when my own grandchildren will be attending.”
