The sun shone brightly on Wooden Spoon when Rhondda legend Tommy David opened a play area and climbing apparatus at Bodringallt Primary school. Headmistress Janet Thomas thanked Wooden Spoon Wales for their donation and promised the equipment would be fully utilised for many years to some.
Neath and Ospreys legend Allan Bateman opened the new outdoor teaching facilities at Nantyffyllon Primary School Maesteg in September.
