Tilehouse Street Pre-school and Nursery is to celebrate 50 years on June 9 – with all former students, staff and committee members invited.

Those coming include former staff member Meg Granger, who received her invitation in person from current pre-schoolers Adam Davis and Rowan Lees.

Meg has seen four children and three grandchildren pass through the pre-school. She said: “Some things have changed, but children are still children.”

Abbie Carpenter, one of the organising team, said: “We would love someone who was at Tilehouse Street in 1968 to come forward!

“The event will celebrate the first 50 years of Tilehouse Street, while raising money to update the IT facilities in the pre-school and new nursery room ready for another fantastic 50 years.”
