Nurs­ery back with new toys

Kentish Express Ashford & District - - FRONT PAGE -

A NURS­ERY group has bounced back from a mis­er­able start to the year when van­dals stole their toys from a locked shed. Dur­ing the Christ­mas break thieves forced en­try to a pad­locked store and stole the col­lec­tion of out­door play equip­ment at Ash­ford Sun­flower Nurs­ery on the Stan­hope es­tate. De­spite the set­back par­ents, staff and the com­mu­nity joined forces to not only re­place the miss­ing toys but ex­pand the range. The Ray Allen Cen­tre has funded a new sturdy stor­age unit and fenc­ing and par­ent Lisa James do­nated a small dinghy which is now the base for pi­rate, mer­maid and mock fish­ing ad­ven­tures. Do­na­tions from Sure Start and Plane and Sim­ple en­abled a wooden friend­ship house to be built.
