She also added, ” We are grateful to Tesco Bags of Help, JCB and East Staffordshire Borough Council for providing support and funds for this climbing frame and also to Creative Play UK, NJ Boulton and Ian Davies(Bramshall) for supplying and installing a wonderful climbing frame. We would also like to thank McDonalds for providing Fruit Juice and Fresh Fruit for the children on the day.”
