The chil­dren and staff at an Ash­ford pre-school have said farewell to the longserv­ing owner, who has de­cided to re­tire af­ter 25 years work­ing with chil­dren.

Mother of two Mag­gie Beswick has owned the Step-by-Step nurs­ery, in Up­per Vicarage Road, in Ken­ning­ton, for the past 18 years.

Be­fore open­ing Step-by-Step, Mag­gie ran a nurs­ery from her home.

Grand­mother Mag­gie cel­e­brated her re­tire­ment on Mon­day at the nurs­ery’s an­nual end of term straw­berry tea party.

She said: “I would like to take this op­por­tu­nity to thank all the staff that have worked for me for their com­mit­ment and ded­i­ca­tion.

“Not for­get­ting the chil­dren, who it has been a plea­sure to see grow in con­fi­dence and abil­ity dur­ing their time at the nurs­ery.”

Keen gar­dener Mag­gie will now spend time in her gar­den and plans to travel with her hus­band, Chris.

The Step-by-Step nurs­ery will con­tinue un­der new owner Katy Keeler, who has worked along­side Mrs Beswick for sev­eral years.
