School given grant to buy new play equipment
Grove Road Community Primary School – which has limited outdoor space and no field or garden - has been awarded £3,000 to buy outdoor playground with furniture, walled mounted games and an outdoor table tennis table.
In addition to the minor grants given on a quarterly basis - which range from £6,000 to £600 - major grants have been presented annually at the fraternity’s annual meeting at the Royal Hall in Harrogate. These can often exceed £30,000.
David S Pratt, the Provincial Grand Master of the Province of Yorkshire West Riding, said: “Being able to financially support Grove Road Community Primary School is a wonderful testament to the generosity of our members, and a fantastic way to celebrate the New Year.”
