Sports day fun for tots

Tots at Brambly Hedge Day Nursery in Castleford have celebrated the opening of their new outdoor meadow area with a sports day.

Children took part in races like egg and spoon and bean bag, as well as a tug o’war, while there was also a race for parents.

The event was to mark the opening of the new meadow area at the Methley Road nursery, which is designed to give children the chance to take part in more sporting activities and explore their natural surroundings.

Mel Gamewell, deputy manager, said: “It was absolutely fantastic, the turn out from parents was unbelievable and the encouragement they gave to children was just wonderful. It didn’t matter if a child was last, it didn’t bother them, they continued to the finish line.

“It was such a buzz we are going to hold a family fun day in August.”
