Laura Keates from Little Laura’s Nursery said: “We celebrated harvest time by making baskets, scarecrows and baking bread, and had donations of food to donate to the day centre guests at the Grange.

“This is a great opportunity for the children to learn about our seasons, how we farm and giving gifts to others, rather than always receiving!

“We would like to thank the Grange Centre for allowing us to celebrate harvest-time with them and to thank all for their continued support of the nursery.”
