New home for nurs­ery

Haugh class quits cabin after 25 years

The Galloway News - - NEWS - Stu­art Gille­spie

Haugh of Urr Nurs­ery’s new home was un­veiled on Satur­day.

For more than 25 years, the nurs­ery had op­er­ated out of a portable cabin in the grounds of Hardgate Pri­mary but that was deemed by the coun­cil to be no longer fit for pur­pose.

So they’re now in a new build­ing, built with gov­ern­ment money that was ringfenced for ser­vices for twoyear-olds who meet spe­cific cri­te­ria.

The new nurs­ery has a large, airy play­room, an of­fice, toi­lets, a laun­dry room and lots of stor­age space.

There’s also a great out­door space, in­clud­ing a soft play­ground, sand­pits and mud kitchen.

Thanks go to every­one who has helped make the move hap­pen in­clud­ing the coun­cil, Awards for All, Ste­wartry Area Com­mit­tee, Dal­beat­tie Ro­tary Club, Cas­tle Dou­glas Ro­tary Club, past and present com­mit­tee mem­bers, nurs­ery par­ents, staff and fam­i­lies.

For in­quiries con­tact nurs­ery man­ager Su­san Bag­nall on 07788688800.
