Nurs­ery re­ceives £700 cash boost

Rutherglen Reformer - - Court -

A Cam­bus­lang nurs­ery has re­ceived a cash boost from a hous­ing devel­oper.

Young­sters from the Up­stairs Kids Klub in Cam­bus­lang donned hard hats to pay a visit to Lovell.

The house builder and their sub­con­trac­tors do­nated £700 to the group which will go to­wards find­ing a new stor­age fa­cil­ity in the nurs­ery’s out­door play area.

Lovell re­cently fin­ished work on a large-scale re­fur­bish­ment pro­gramme to trans­form the multi-storey block of flats at Kyle Court, which is just next door to the nurs­ery on Cam­bus­lang’s Main Street.

Dur­ing the re­fur­bish­ment, Lovell held spe­cial safety talks and com­pe­ti­tions for the nurs­ery chil­dren. The young­sters even had the op­por­tu­nity to de­sign safety-themed posters which were dis­played on site.

Up­stairs Kids Klub man­ager An­nemarie Jack said:“Be­fore the re­fur­bish­ment work be­gan we were con­cerned about the pos­si­ble dis­rup­tion. How­ever, this has been a very pos­i­tive ex­pe­ri­ence over­all for all of us and the chil­dren have gained im­por­tant knowl­edge and life skills.

“Lovell res­i­dent li­ai­son man­ager Ness Ste­wart played a ma­jor role in this, work­ing closely with us and or­gan­is­ing fun learn­ing ac­tiv­i­ties for the chil­dren which helped them think about their own safety.”

Sarah Freel, re­gional part­ner­ships di­rec­tor of Lovell, added: “Hav­ing had fan­tas­tic co-op­er­a­tion and un­der­stand­ing from the nurs­ery and from par­ents, we all wanted to say thank you and to leave be­hind some­thing of last­ing ben­e­fit through our Lovell Legacy pro­gramme.”
