-- Derek and Christina Burke will be meeting the famous character from author Raymond Briggs’s magical children’s book – plus scores of local children with their mums and dads at a special ‘Winter Wonderland’
Open Day event at Westwood Park Day Nursery, Winn Road, Portswood.
Tonia Chilcott, nursery manager explained: "Our lovely Victorian building and garden area have just undergone a massive £110,000 refurbishment programme and we wanted to celebrate the completion of the works in real style. It’s edging closer to Christmas so we decided on a ‘Winter Wonderland’
theme and invited The Snowman
to come and chill out with the children. Plus, we plan to have a host of cuddly animals from a local petting zoo too. It’s an open invitation to local parents to come and see exactly what our state-of-the-
art nursery can now offer their children."
She added: "The Mayor will cut a special ribbon to mark the nursery’s facelift – which includes a fantastic new garden area, complete with new climbing apparatus; growing and digging beds and a special stage area where our children can put on shows undercover. Inside the nursery itself we have a superb new-look baby room facility that can now accommodate up to fifteen babies."
The nursery, which has an Ofsted ‘Good
’ rating, is part of the nationwide Asquith Day Nurseries group. The Open Day event on Saturday will run from 10 am – 1pm.
