An infant school is enjoying its new extension which includes a large hall and a new kitchen where meals can be prepared on site for the first time.

Little Gonerby Infant School now has a school hall double the size of its old one, where all 180 pupils will be able to 
eat their meals and where community groups will be able to hold classes and play sport.

Headteacher Helen Hilton said: “We are absolutely delighted with the new facilities. They will enable us to deliver quality meals for our children and open up as a community building.

“The children really love their new hall and are excited about having their own meals cooked here.”

The new £800,000 extension was built by DIS Contractors of Lincoln, with project managers Thornton Firkin.

The new building has allowed the school to create a new library area, with the help of a £2,000 donation from the friends of the school, and a community room for use by the governors and other groups.
