I just got this update about the expansion of St John's Primary School. As there is a large and the provision in the area this progress will be welcomed by many families:
"As you may be aware the planning permission for the installation of a temporary classroom building at St John’s Primary School was granted last night (subject to conditions).
I am writing to inform you that we have instructed the company MRC to begin the site preparation works tomorrow with the intention of craning in the building on Saturday 23rd July.
As this will involving craning the bays over the play park and in order that we do this safely, we are locking the school gates and putting up signs to say the school car park, the play park and playing field are temporarily closed to the public. The duration of the closure will be from the end of school this afternoon until the contractors have left site on Monday.
The craning is due to take place on Saturday morning (approximately 8am), however we will have contractors and their equipment on site from mid morning tomorrow until end of school Monday."
