Nursery closure agreed
A nursery attached to Dukeries College and Complex is to close after its governing body decided a funding deficit was becoming too large.
The Hand In Hand Day Nursery will close in February because the principal, Mr Lewis Walker, said he could not afford to divert £80,000 from the school’s budget to meet the nursery costs shortfall.
Increasing competition from other nurseries is also being blamed for the closure.
