Children at a primary school got a nice surprise when they returned from the summer holidays to discover brand new play equipment in their playground.
Pupils at Woodford Green Primary, in Sunset Avenue, had not been told when the play area would be installed because school staff wanted to give them a treat at the start of the new academic year.
The school's Parent Teacher Association (PTA) has spent the last three years raising more than £16,000 to pay for the climbing frames and ropes.
The play area was officially opened by the mayor of Waltham Forest, Cllr Nadeem Ali, at a ceremony last week.
PTA secretary Sasha Kennedy said it had taken "many hours of hard work" to raise the cash for the new facilities but said staff, parents and pupils were delighted.
The equipment was installed over the summer holidays.
