Pre-school looks for new premises in Corbridge

CORBRIDGE Pre-School has launched a £20,000 fund-raising campaign which will enable it to move to a new site.
The childcare facility, which is run by a committee of parents and was established more than 30 years ago, is based in the village’s Methodist Church Hall on Princes Street and currently looks after up to 16 toddlers, four mornings each week.
But the need to smooth the transition for youngsters from pre-school to the nursery at Corbridge First School on St Helen’s Lane is one of the reasons behind the move.

Prudhoe workers were queuing up at the town's employment exchange to put their names down for jobs at a new £15million wood pulp factory.
Plans for the factory, which would occupy the former ICI site, had been passed by Northumberland County Council, and it was hoped that when it opened it would turn Prudhoe into a boom town.
Many of those registering for jobs had been unemployed since the ICI plant closed down the previous July.
