A NEW nursery is set to open its doors in Parkeston.

Angie Craig decided to open a nursery at the Railway Club’s hall, in Hamilton Street after seeing the growing demand for a new provision.

Angie, 50, of Main Road, Dovercourt, has been working in child care for more than 15 years. She has organised an open day, which will be held on Saturday, February 8 from 10am to 2pm to give information to prospective parents.

She said: “The Railway Club is keen to open a pre-school in the hall.

“At the open day we will have many businesses doing table top sales and there will be a bouncy castle and hot food.

Angie, who owns the Yellow Brick Road Nursery in Clacton, hopes to open the Yellow Brick Road Nursery Parkeston at the Parkeston club on February 24.
