Nurs­ery un­veils £30,000 play area

Macclesfield Express - - SCHOOLS NEWS -

A NURS­ERY has un­veiled its new out­door play area after rais­ing £30,000.

The team at the Hol­lies Pre-School in Poyn­ton started fundrais­ing as the old play sur­face was be­com­ing un­safe.

They held balls, spon­sored tod­dles and staff runs and won do­na­tions from the Round Ta­ble, Ladies Cir­cle and Ro­tary groups. Now the play area has been of­fi­cially opened at a cel­e­bra­tion event.

Deb­bie Moore-Grundy, man­ager, said: “The com­mit­tee, staff, chil­dren and par­ents have worked ex­tremely hard to help raise the money and we con­tinue to do so.”

The rib­bon was cut by MP David Rut­ley and Coun San­dra Hors­man, the for­mer mayor of Poyn­ton, also at­tended. Mr Rut­ley said: “It was great to visit the Hol­lies Pre-School and have the hon­our of open­ing this play area. I’m sure this new high qual­ity out­side space will al­low the pre-school to more fully sup­port the chil­dren and their par­ents.”

The pre-school is a char­ity run by vol­un­teers which started out 40 years ago in a scout hut. It of­fers var­i­ous clubs for chil­dren. Con­tact 01625 850176 to find out more.
