DAVE Watts, MP for St Helens North, has officially opened the new nursery at Merton Bank Primary School.

Pupils celebrated with parents, staff, governors and councillors as a tree was planted to mark the occasion.

The tree was donated by local business Suregrow who also attended the opening.

Executive headteacher Kirsty Haw said: “Everyone connected with Merton Bank is thrilled with our new nursery building.

“It will ensure that our pupils get off to the very best start in a fabulous setting.”

Tony Barrow of Paragon, who built the nursery, presented Mrs Haw with a cheque to develop the outside space.
