A BIGGAR Nursery that was closed for two years has celebrated reopening with a charity coffee morning.

Bizzyberry Children's Nursery reopened in August after closing down in 2014.

A short time after its rebirth, the nursery held a charity fundraiser and got the children involved to create some tasty treats.

All of the 33 children who attend full time were involved in baking the cakes.

The coffee morning, in aid of Macmillan Cancer Care, was held on Friday, September 30. The children created a range of food, from tray bakes and cream cakes to rice krispie treats.

Ten visitors came along to the event on the day, however, friends and families had been supporting the bake for the whole week.

Owners breathed a new lease of life into the premesis, now incorporating a range of features from a new baby garden to a dedicated sleeping room.

Works also took place to refurbish the lighting, electrics, plumbing and heating, as well as improve the three playrooms for babies, toddlers and pre-school children and the staff room.

Gillian Haynes, owner and director of operations at the nursery, said: "We worked on a project to completely transform the building and judged on the reactions, we have achieved that.

"Our aim was to re-establish the day care provision in Biggar, which has been lacking for a few years now. Our focus has been on providing a quality enviornment, with quality staffing, and a quality learning experience for the children."

She added: "We've had a fantastic response from the local community since reopening.

"There are different activities planned each month with the children taking the lead on what they want to do. Forthcoming events include Children in Need and  Christmas Fair."
