An Indian restaurant’s fundraising evening has raised around £1,000 for a village nursery.

Table 8, in Wedmore’s High Street, put on an Indian buffet for 140 guests who each made their own donations for the meal.

All of the money raised will be put towards improving outdoor facilities at Wedmore First School Nursery, in Blackford Road.

A nursery spokesman said: “All the staff and children are extremely grateful for all the support and hard work from everyone involved.

“The money will go towards improving and renovating the outside area.”

Staff from Wedmore clothing store, Victoria and Scarlet, were also on hand to host a raffle which added to the total.

The nursery provides indoor and outdoor learning areas for children aged two to three years old.

It has close links to the village first school, with pupils involved in harvest and nativity services.
