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.

AT a public meeting in Wylam Institute it was decided to split the remaining money in the village's peace celebration fund between the village schools and a planned war memorial to the Fallen.
A brass plaque bearing the names of 19 former students who died in the Great War was to be erected in the Wylam Council Schools at a cost of £20 and £30 was to be donated to the war memorial fund.
