EX-POMPEY star Linvoy Primus opened a new centre at a Portsmouth school.
Parents, children and teachers turned out for the opening of the Acorn Centre at Milton Park Federated Primary School, along with the mayor, Councillor Frank Jonas.
It will be used as a Sure Start children’s centre and for extra activities at the school.
Children attending breakfast and after-school clubs will use the centre too.
Headteacher at the school Julie Smith said: ‘We have got a purpose-built area with a new children’s room and new facilities, with an outside play area.
‘The children absolutely love it. They all want to be reception year again so they can go in there.’
She added: ‘We want to use the school as a hub for the community for weekends and evening as well.’
