Staff, parents and pupils are looking forward to the building of a £1.2 million community sports hall at a primary school.
Sir Edward Garnier, MP for Harborough, visited Meadowdale Primary, in Market Harborough, to see how it was gearing up for the project.
Earlier in the year, he congratulated the school on securing support from the Academies Capital Maintenance Fund and last week he saw how the school had progressed since receiving the money.
Sir Edward said: “I remember coming to Meadowdale when it first opened, more than 10 years ago.

“It was a good school then but is an even better one now and can only improve further with the addition of the sports hall.
“The children will make good use of it and do better in class as a result.”
Sir Edward met head teacher Kerry Rodger, site manager Andrew Blyth, governor David Scott, business manager Victoria Scranage and other staff.
He also visited pupils and teachers in their classrooms.
The school hopes the building will be open by September, once planning permission is granted.
The hall, which would be on land at the back of the school, facing Rockingham Road, would have badminton, netball and basketball courts.
It would have separate entrances for the school and out-of-hours use.
Mr Blyth said: “It has been a vision of mine to improve the sporting facilities here so we can take part in more events.”
As part of the brief, the school requested an indoor and outdoor climbing wall.
