Outdoor space at St Margaret's CofE Primary School in Halstead, Essex, is to be revamped with the help of a #163;4,000 development grant from shade sails company Keep It Kool. The cash - top prize in a competition run by the firm - will be spent on a large canopy, creating an external classroom.

Fiveways Play Centre near Brighton, which has been housed in temporary prefabricated buildings for the last 34 years, is to be transformed into an #163;820,000 eco-friendly nursery with a new Sure Start centre.
