Saltway Day Nursery marks 20th anniversary

Date: Tuesday 02 June 2015

To celebrate the 20th anniversary of a day nursery in Bodicote, we donated £350 to buy new summer plants and help with the upkeep of a new flowerbed at the entrance to the village. 

Saltway Day Nursery, which is a private nursery for children aged from six months to five years, began preparations for the flowerbed on Saturday 9th May. The flowers were then planted one week later on Saturday 16th May, with members of the nursery’s parents committee also involved in the event.

Kate O’Connor, Principal of Saltway Day Nursery, says: “We are extremely grateful to Taylor Wimpey for their donation. The flowerbed will provide a warm welcome to the village and can be enjoyed by everyone.

“The flowerbed is located in the village near to the nursery, and will bring parents and the local community closer together. The help Taylor Wimpey is providing is super and we would like to say a big thank you to them.”

Any funds remaining from our donation will be put towards an appeal to raise money for a public access defibrillator for the residents of Bodicote, which will be located in the village and accessible at all times, as well as being linked to the ambulance service.

Saltway Day Nursery – which is located near to our Longford Park development – is hosting a wide variety of other events throughout the year to raise the £2,000 needed for the defibrillator, including a fete on Friday 26th June and a ‘dressing-up day’ and Christmas gift night in November.

Nikki Gibson, Associate Sales and Marketing Director for Taylor Wimpey Oxfordshire, says: “We are very pleased to be able to offer the donation to Saltway Day Nursery, as 20 years of service is a great achievement.

“We hope that the residents of Bodicote will enjoy the new flowerbed, and we wish everyone at the nursery the best of luck with their future fundraising events.”

There’s a selection of three and four-bedroom houses currently available to reserve at Longford Park.
