Denver school in desperate need of better car park
A West Norfolk village primary school has said it desperately needs to improve its car park facilities as it begins a project which will improve social distancing for parents.
Denver Primary School plans to resurface the car park with Tarmac to cater for the additional use of improved sports facilities.
The car park is owned by Denver Playing Field Association, but it will be used by the school to drop off and pick up pupils as well as sport.
The school says the changes are important during the pandemic period as it will be more suitable for social distancing.
As part of the plans, the car park will be lit with LED floodlights and a camera to ensure appropriate security.
And it is hoped that 75 parking spaces can be created through the new surfacing. There will also be new fencing.
In total, the project is estimated to cost £27,000 with £10,000 already secured through grants and fundraising.
A statement from the school said: “Over the past few years, we have been successful in attracting external funding into our site alongside our own fundraising.
“These include Sport England, Football Foundation, Norfolk Community Foundation, the borough council and other local charitable foundations. This has meant it is increasingly difficult for us to attract funding despite us continuing to increase usage of the site.”
