Can you spare one minute to help Breage Primary School win the playground of their dreams?

All of the staff and children have their hopes pinned on Cornwall’s support in a national competition, for which voting ends in just under two weeks, on July 24.

They are bidding to win a recycled playground through the TerraCycle initiative, which they have been raising funds through for several years by recycling certain items, to replace play equipment.

Jenny Brookes, who signed the school up to the competition, said: “The current play structure is worn and rusty and in need of replacement and we’d love to have Cornwall’s votes, especially as just one minute of each person’s time now, will give thousands of hours of smiley, happy faces using this each school day if we win.”

However, the school is up against much larger schools nationally, some of which are six times the size, so Breage needs votes from the whole community.

To do so visit and pick Breage School from the drop down list, then add your first name and email address and click vote. Voters must be 18 years or over and a UK resident, with one vote per email address allowed.

The school is also urging people to share that they have voted on social media accounts and encourage their friends to do the same.
