A Bridgnorth nursery has received a congratulations card from the Lord-Lieutenant of Shropshire in recognition of remaining open during the lockdown earlier this year.
Little Green House Nursery, of Mill Street, Low Town was sent the card by Mrs Anna Turner JP and both staff and children were delighted.
The nursery was the only one in Bridgnorth to stay open for the children of key workers.
”We made the decision to remain if possible throughout lockdown to enable vulnerable children and key worker children to still attend childcare, which in turn allowed key workers to continue working,” said Little Green House managing director Hannah Vyse.
“The team at Shropshire Council, led by Neville Ward, did an outstanding job supporting us throughout this difficult time. Our staff were fabulous at pulling together and working so flexibly throughout the lockdown and we ended up with a core team, which included five team members who worked throughout.
“We accessed the furlough scheme for other members of the team which was a life saver for the business.
“I am so proud of what we have achieved this year and I think this whole period in our lives has brought us closer together.
“It was the cherry on the cake receiving the card of appreciation from the Lord-Lieutenant of Shropshire and both staff and children were absolutely delighted!”.
