A PRIMARY school has seen a massive rewiring project take place over the past couple of months.

Haverigg Primary School, in Millom, was awarded £234,432 for construction, repair and maintenance purposes.

The work on the Atkinson Street school was done by Seascale-based firm Jacobs Stobbarts Limited.

The West Cumbria company started the project on July 22 and finished on August 31.

The central purchasing body for the work was Cumbria County Council (CCC).

A spokesperson from CCC, said: “The county council has invested £234,432 into re-wiring Haverigg School during the summer holidays.

"The works were completed at the end of August ahead of the new school year and will provide a much brighter and more sustainable learning environment for the school children and staff.”

As well as completion of rewiring to the primary school, the education centre will see improvements to its lighting, power, data, security, and fire alarm systems.
