TV star­dom for nurs­ery

Rutherglen Reformer - - Your Vote Matters - Jonathan Ged­des

A Cam­bus­lang nurs­ery are set for a taste of small screen fame af­ter be­ing picked to ap­pear in an ad­vert pro­mot­ing an eco-friendly char­ity.

Hol­lytree Nurs­ery, on Bay­wil­low Court in Drum­sagard, will be seen in the up­com­ing ad, which is for the Surfers Against Sewage group and is high­light­ing pol­lu­tion in oceans.

The ad­vert fea­tures nurs­ery pupil Freya Muir, who holds a seashell up to her ear and re­coils in hor­ror at the pain of the ocean that she hears.

Stacy Tay­lor, a staff mem­ber at the nurs­ery, played the role of Freya’s teacher in the clip.

Af­ter be­ing se­lected to host the shoot, nurs­ery man­ager Donna Brown worked with the crew in cast­ing chil­dren and set­ting up and cre­at­ing dis­plays for a beach and ocean theme in the back­ground.

Over the course of a few weeks im­ages of the play­rooms and lay­out were sent to en­sure the right space for film­ing, with young­sters then play­ing in the back­ground as the ad­vert takes place.

Donna said : “As an eco school flag award-win­ning nurs­ery, re­duc­tion of pol­lu­tion among other eco topics are very im­por­tant to us.

“We have var­i­ous eco projects led at the nurs­ery by our eco co-or­di­na­tor Stephanie Miller , such as power off weeks, re­cy­cling and the Nessie bin scheme for re­cy­cling clothes on site at the nurs­ery.

“The chil­dren in­volved in the film­ing were re­ally con­fi­dent and will­ing to talk about our Eco Schools.

“They were com­pletely gen­uine play­ing in the back­ground and Freya took di­rec­tion from the crew re­ally well and was a nat­u­ral in front of the cam­era.

“I am re­ally proud Hol­lytree has had the op­por­tu­nity to be in­volved, and sup­port one of the best recog­nised marine con­ser­va­tion char­i­ties in the UK, Surfers Against Sewage.

“Par­ents and staff alike have all been de­lighted with the out­come.”

The ad­vert was pro­duced by Mallinson Tele­vi­sion Pro­duc­tions.

Their pre­vi­ous work in­cludes ads by com­pa­nies such as Lidl, Royal Bank of Scot­land, Scot­tish Power and Irn Bru.
