Pre-school announces plans for move

PLAY time at a North Somerset pre-school could get even more fun if bosses are able to raise more than �100,000 to move into a larger premise.

Locking Pre-School has announced plans to leave its base at the village hall for Locking Primary School in Meadow Drive.

The move, which would include building a single-storey extension at the school, would cost �117,000.

To meet the price, the pre-school has applied for community funding and is launching a Buy a Brick Campaign.

Bosses are also co-organising the annual village fete on the village park in Grenville Avenue at 2pm on July 16.

In a planning application submitted to North Somerset Council, the pre-school said a park and stride scheme would be set up to combat any potential parking issues.

The scheme would involve parents parking off Old Banwell Road and walking their children across a field to the east side of the school, avoiding the main car park.
