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.

A workman was buried alive while digging a drain in the Prudhoe Urban Council's housing estate at Oaklands.
Workmates rushed to the aid of 50-year-old Richard Barclay, of Stocksfield, when the wall of the trench he was digging collapsed.
They managed to dig his head and shoulders free before finally pulling him from the earth. He was found to be suffering from shock and bruising.
