Children from an infant and nursery school held a teddy bears picnic to mark the opening of a garden facility.
The event at Strathmore Infant and Nursery School in Hitchin was held on Friday last week.
Located in the school’s nursery department, the new garden was relaid and new play equipment installed in time for children to enjoy in the summer months.
Throughout the school year fundraising events organised by the Friends of Strathmore School Association (FOSSA) generated £7,000 to partly fund the work.
FOSSA chairman, Sarah Cash, lent a hand to officially open the garden watched by the children.
Under her guidance, FOSSA has raised in the region of £100,000 for the benefit of Strathmore children over the past seven years.
Headteacher Bernadette Holmes said: “We are really excited to share the nursery’s garden and the new facilities it has to offer with all our children. The fundraising which has contributed to completing the garden has involved the whole school and it’s fantastic to see what we have achieved.”
