Southside nursery Hickory Dickory House is marking its tenth birthday with a community fun day next Saturday.

The fun day at the nursery in Pollokshaws will involve all the children, the teaching staff and parents who will have a role to play in the grand plans.

Three to five year olds at the nursery are designing the poster destined for local libraries and shops to encourage the community to join in their celebrations.

Meanwhile, staff are speaking to local businesses in the hope of securing prizes for the lucky dip.

Parents will be charged with helping out with the bouncy castles, face painting, home baking and lucky dip stalls.

Marina Fern, owner of the nursery, said: “We wanted to do something special for the kids — past and present — the teaching team here and the parents, to celebrate this milestone birthday”.

Everyone is invited to the fun day on the April 28, from 11am-1pm, to enjoy the activities, including a guest appearance from Mickey and Minnie Mouse.

All proceeds raised on the day will be put towards the nursery’s summer outing to Heads of Ayr Farm Park.

Hickory Dickory House opened in 2002 and has welcomed hundreds of children over the years.

If any local businesses would like to get involved please call Julie on 0141 636 0000.
