PUPILS at a school in Royston are enjoying the peace and quiet of a new addition to their break times.

The Hexagon is a wooden sheltered area which students at Greneway School can use if they want to escape the hustle and bustle that break time brings.

School spokeswoman Emma Daintrey said: "The children are really enjoying the Hexagon.

"They can use it for reading or as somewhere quiet to go at break times.

"It is a good shelter if the pupils are outside at break in the winter and it will be lovely in the summer."

Friends of Greneway School donated £4,000 towards the construction of the building.

It was officially opened as the venue for the school's MacMillan Coffee Morning where cakes and biscuits donated by parents were sold.

Mrs Daintrey added: "We were touched by the generosity of the parents.

"We actually had to sell all the cakes and biscuits over two days as we had so many."

The school made £430 for MacMillan.
