A SCHOOL is to get a new outdoor reading area thanks to a housebuilder.

Silver Tree Primary School, in Ushaw Moor, near Durham will use a £500 donation from Taylor Wimpey to pay for seats and landscaping for the Silver Trees quiet reading space.

Head teacher John Trueman said: “We currently don’t have an area outside for our pupils to relax or read books and we hope our Silver Trees project will offer a different setting during lunch and play times at the school.

“Taylor Wimpey’s donation has helped massively with the project and all of the students and staff at Silver Tree are extremely grateful for the support.”

The area will feature sculptures previously installed in the centre of the village.

Taylor Wimpey has been building a 167-home new estate, Middlewood Moor, in Ushaw Moor, north of Ladysmith Terrace. It has also supported Durham Federation FC.

Karl Morton, sales and marketing director at Taylor Wimpey North East, said: “Our Middlewood Moor development is located in the heart of Ushaw Moor, so we’re aware of the vital role the school plays in the local community.

“We’re absolutely delighted to help Silver Tree install this creative space for their pupils and hope everybody enjoys using it.”
