The official opening of the Nursery's new Mud Kitchen named "George's Mud Kitchen" took place on Friday. The mud kitchen was funded by a kind donation from the George Heath Foundation. Gaynor Heath kindly cut the ribbon and shared a few words saying "George would have really approved of this development for the children as he was never happier than when playing in mud and getting really dirty"
Lyn Jackson, Nursery Manager shared a few words with the parents and children who joined in with the opening celebrations. She said "We are passionate about children enjoying the outdoors and developing their learning using natural resources. Donations such as this allow us to purchase those "extra special items" and we are very grateful to the Foundation. George attended the Nursery when younger and later the Primary School"
Our thanks also go to AK Property & Landscaping who put up the picket fence at cost price, to Liz's Cake Creations for making the celebration cake, to Nikki from Creating Names for the name plaque, to Luke Butterworth, Regan Williams and the staff and children of the Nursery who all helped with clearing the area, to Dave Turner the school Caretaker for his help and of course to the Primary School for their support in allowing the Nursery to develop an area of their woods.
