Happy birthday

Oct 31, 2012 | News stories

When Little Ladybirds Day Nursery celebrated its 8th anniversary, there was only one person who could blow out the candles on the cake.

That job fell to Craig Anderton, who turned four on the same day that Little Ladybirds Day Nursery reached its 8th birthday.

As part of a day of celebrations at the nursery, which is situated on the Preston Farm Industrial Estate, the children did activities around the number eight, including painting, jigsaws, counting and making eight-legged spiders.

They also baked a cake and weighed out the ingredients themselves.

Melanie Hirst, Director of Little Ladybirds, said: “We wanted to do something special to mark the nursery’s 8th anniversary and to ensure every child felt like they were involved in the celebrations.

“It was nice coincidence that Craig turned four on the same day and he was the obvious choice to blow out the candles on the cake.”
