A NURSERY has celebrated its 15th birthday by expanding to cater for younger children.

Noah’s Ark, based at the Kings Centre in Tyldesley, has opened a new baby room for children aged six months to two years old and held a party on Friday to celebrate its landmark anniversary.

Manager Judith Monks organised the party. She said: “We have made links in the community Astley and Leigh Rotary Club together with Balfour Beatty who are building new bus ways behind Noah’s Ark have constructed a new garden area for our children to explore and learn about growing. We have strawberry plants and peas planted.”
