Polish couple reopen Banham nursery

A disused nursery in Banham has been brought back to life after the efforts of two teachers from Poland.

The Little Farmer's Day Nursery, which will be run by Agnieszka Klepacka and Bernard Moszczynski, held an open day at the weekend.

The couple, who moved from eastern Poland to Banham five years ago, have received help from local residents to get the nursery project off the ground.

A previous nursery on the site off The Fen in Banham closed down several years ago but the couple and their staff plan to breathe new life into the building. Children's author and illustrator Steve Eggleton painted the playground mural as his contribution to the project.

The qualified teachers also have experience of working with children and young children with autism and learning difficulties.

'We intend to build-up a nursery that will integrate children with all sorts of different needs into a vibrant and supportive community where everybody learns from one another,' said Agnieszka.
