British gas workers spent two days in August painting at St Francis Pre-School, also a charitable trust, in time for the new school year.
Children returned to a bright and colourful new classroom, with both the ceilings and walls painted.
The redecoration came as part of a community initiative from British Gas, which aims to help out with local community ventures and charitable trusts.
The nine workers also painted the cloakroom, an outside canopy and surrounding fence and built a new shed.
Cathy Palmer, supervisor at the pre-school, said: “There has been a fantastic response from parents and staff when they have walked round the classroom.
“The children absolutely love it because it’s so bright and colourful for them.
“It also makes everything so much more accessible and easier for them.
“It’s been great since they’ve been back and they really look forward to coming to school.
“It’s given the children a much fresher, brighter and cleaner environment to enjoy their toys in and play with their friends every day.
On behalf of the children we want to say thank you to British Gas for helping us provide this for them.
“It was so nice of them offering to come down and help with it.”
