Have your say

SCHOOLS in Portsmouth and Hampshire who feel their playground could do with a major spruce-up are being encouraged to enter a draw for a free makeover worth £30,000.

Cottage Grove Primary and Northern Parade Juniors have already put their names in the hat for the one-off prize, sponsored by woodcare experts Ronseal and Timberline playground manufacturers.

To nominate your school for Playground Project, visit and state why it deserves to win with a photograph of the current play area. The deadline is Saturday, April 30.
