Children will be able to enjoy a new all-weather pitch after a generous donation from a husband and wife.

Come rain or shine – or even snow – pupils at Clore Shalom, Shenley, now have a brand new area to exercise and the new pitch was unveiled last week.

The pitch has been funded by Andrew and Wendy Cohen, who live nearby, and recognise the importance the school plays in the community.

The playing surface will be used for PE lessons, daily exercise, and after school clubs and will be in use throughout all seasons.

On officially opening the field, Mr Cohen said: “Clore Shalom has a great reputation in the local community for being a welcoming, inclusive school who are striving to achieve excellence in all they do. The school makes an effort to support the wider community, so it is nice to be able to give something back for them.”

Deputy head teacher at Clore Shalom, Ben Conway, added: “This new facility provides us with a safe option for sporting and physical development activities in all weathers, all year round. Our pupils have really enjoyed the opportunity to use it; and hopefully their parents will appreciate the further opportunities that we are able to provide them throughout the winter months.

“We are all very grateful to Mr and Mrs Cohen for their generosity in making this happen.”
