The Duchess of Northumberland helped mark the opening of a new room at an Alnwick nursery last week.

The new owners of Apple Blossom Day Nursery, formerly Rainbow, have created a new room – the Buttercup Room – for children between 12 and 24 months. Previously all the children from babies to the age of to two were all in one room together. There’s a massive developmental difference between a child entering that age and one about to leave, therefore the new room makes practical sense.
