Pre-school looks for new premises in Corbridge
Last updated at 08:34, Wednesday, 13 February 2013
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.

HAVING raised over £1,000 through prize draws, dances, whist drives and donations, Bellingham was able to buy its town hall.
So successful was the fund-raising that when all the debts were cleared more than £100 was left in the fund.
The hall could now be used by the town for all manner of social and public functions.
