A NURSERY has found a green solution to a lack of space.

Constructed from two recycled shipping containers, the new building at Bedford Hall Methodist Primary School’s nursery on Breaston Avenue, Leigh, provides an eco-friendly and imaginative learning environment.

The Rev Paul Martin officially opened the new building at the nursery, which is part of the Acorn Academy Trust.

Associate head teacher Amy Burkes said: “The new building has been a vision of the school’s for five years and the nursery provides outstanding, innovative indoor and outdoor learning spaces specifically designed to meet the educational needs of the children.”
