A primary school’s new and unique outside learning space has been dedicated to a former headteacher and community champion for Harleston.

Hudson’s Hut has been built at Harleston Primary School in honour of Rev Clive Hudson, who died last year.

For 25 years Rev Hudson was headteacher when the school was known as Dove Infant School and was also a district councillor and member of the local clergy.

Current headteacher Roger Walsh said: “We felt the need to provide a fitting and permanent tribute to Clive and have created it in the ‘Hudson’s Hut’”

“He had a strong interest in promoting children’s reading skills. He was also passionate about improving the outdoor environment of the school and had planted many trees and shrubs during his time here.”

The whole structure is made of wood and has a Hudson’s Hut wooden sign outside and an engraved dedication to Rev Hudson inside.

The official opening on Tuesday featured Rev Hudson’s widow Olive, Rev Nigel Tuffnell, vicar for the Harleston area parishes, Mr Walsh and school pupils.
