Shaw Village Pre-School opened its doors to children for the first time from a building at Holy Trinity Church in January before closing just a few months later because of the pandemic.
Owner Angela Jesson kept busy by spending the lockdown preparing for their return by refurbishing the building with the help of friend and colleague Cheryl Garman.
This included laying new flooring to replace the old flooring they inherited when they moved into the building. Flooring Superstore donated carpet flooring for the main pre-school room and vinyl flooring to be used in the arts and crafts area, which is where the children have their lunch.
Angela said: “As a new business, donations like this make a huge difference and we’re grateful for their support. “The flooring has made such a difference and, along with the other work we have undertaken during lock-down, it was a lovely thing for the children and parents to come back to.”
Flooring Superstore regional manager Ian Robinson said: “We were delighted to be able to offer this donation to the pre-school. “We are always keen to support local groups, especially charities and schools, as this forms an important part of our corporate social responsibility strategy.”
