Welwyn Garden City schoolchildren put a Spring in their step
WET weather did nothing to dampen the spirits of these young students, as they dashed to raise cash for a school project.
Pupils from Springmead Primary School, in Hilly Fields, WGC, donned their best fancy dress costumes for a sponsored fun run around nearby Moneyhole Playing Fields, which aimed to raise funds for a new school pond.
Not only would the pond help pupils learn more about wildlife, but it would help Springmead obtain its Eco-School Silver Award.
And despite intermittent showers, the colourful pupils all ran at least once around the one kilometre track, while nursery children took part in a fun run back at the school.
Eco-School coordinator Helen Payne said the event would hopefully raise around �1,000 for the pond project.
