A representative from the housebuilder presented the donation to the executive headteacher, Kim Robertson, on June 18.

Ms Robertson said: "Ensuring that we can provide a safe and secure environment for our children is a priority for us, but balancing the books to ensure this happens is no easy feat.

"I can't thank Pennyfarthing Homes enough for this generous donation.

"It makes a significant contribution towards a project to replace some fencing that we have been desperate to address for some time and will now be able to make a reality."

Pupils joined in the day's celebrations, enjoying some time in the playground.

Sheetal Smith, Pennyfarthing's Sales and Marketing director, said: "We are thrilled to collaborate with Fordingbridge Primary School and are delighted to give something back to the community."

The company hopes the donation will make a positive change to the school, and aims to maintain a beneficial partnership for many years.

Pennyfarthing Homes is currently constructing 64 homes in Whitsbury Green, a half-mile from Fordingbridge Primary, welcoming new first-time buyers and homeowners from the area.
