A GRANT of £3,800 has been approved by Salisbury Area Board for further equipment and facilities at the successful café and shop at the Somerset Road schools campus.

The project is run jointly for St Mark’s Junior School, Wyndham Park Infant School and Exeter House School.

Gareth Flemington, headteacher at St Mark’s told councillors: “Since we opened, the number of people who have accessed it has increased dramatically. It is going to be a community hub and we want to build an office and meeting area.”
