Diary - Crystal clear?

6th November 2009 at 00:00

While most of us set aside dreams of entering the Crystal Maze dome when the TV programme ended in the 1990s, one Midlands school is resurrecting the set from the popular show at their school.

Teachers at Our Lady's Catholic Primary School, Fenton have applied for permission to build a #163;20,000 glass solar dome over what is now an overgrown play area.

The see-through sphere would provide space for 25 play areas for children and could also be rented out to community groups after school hours.

Tracey Knight, the school's business and development manager, said: "Personally, it reminds me of the Eden Project, but everybody says it looks like the dome from The Crystal Maze."
