SCHOOLCHILDREN in Winsford are enjoying playing a new sport in their playground.

A new basketball court has been installed at Willow Wood Community Primary School.

Pupils are having great fun improving their skills as they strive to get the ball into the net.

The school received the gift from the WPA Benevolent Foundation, which encourages and promotes healthy activity amongst children of all ages to enjoy keeping fit.
