The Tom Thumb Nursery has re-opened in the former St Edmunds Church in North Lynn after the county council kicked them out of their premises in Marsh Lane. With the children are from left: Jade Jeffery, Mike Todd, Jayne Freear and Kelly Wells.

Youngsters at a nursery are settling into their new home after they were forced to leave their former headquarters.

The staff and children of the Tom Thumb nursery moved out of their old home at Marsh House, Marsh Lane, Gaywood, last summer after county council leaders decided to sell the property.

But the group has now re-opened at the former St Edmund’s Church in North Lynn after being given the approval of education bosses last month.

Kevin Tricks, the nursery’s manager, said: “It’s gone extremely well and there has been lots of interest.

“It has all been a bit of a rush. We only got Ofsted approval in December and the contract on January 4.”

Although there has been no official advertisement of the re-opening, more than 25 children are already registered.

Mr Tricks said: “The Facebook page has also been successful in getting the word across about the re-opening.

“Some of the parents have even said that this is a better location then our old site.”

And he paid tribute to the support the group has had.

“It has been a great effort by everyone. People have said how nice the nursery looked. They said it was great for someone to make something positive out the building.”

There are also plans for a garden area at the site to be turned into a playground.
