YOUNGSTERS at a Wisbech primary school are to have an amphitheatre to act out their plays and productions.

Work should begin next month on the ambitious programme, which will transform the grounds at Elm Road School with the building of a small pavilion, shelters and extension of the play area.

A cycle shed and bin stores have also been included.

Pupils are being asked to come up with ideas for sponsored activities which will help raise the money for the ambitious project.
