A special service will take place in recognition of a church pre-school closing its doors after 4 decades.
The decision was made to close Elm Ridge Pre-school last year. The setting will close its doors at the end of the summer term, despite angry objections from parents and supporters.
An action group was formed to try and save the setting, but the church in which the pre-school is based stood firm on its decision that the pre-school is no longer sustainable.
The setting has arranged a party for the children which will take place on July 16, and the children intend to release butterflies as a symbol of change and growth.
A final leavers’ service will then take place on July 17, which everyone that has been involved or attended the setting in its 40 years has been invited to.
