Children and nursery staff were joined by special guests on Monday to help them celebrate a milestone.

Cotton Buddies nursery celebrated its first birthday with Havering mayor, Cllr Philippa Crowder and her consort Cllr John Crowder (Cons, Havering Park).

Nursery owner and manager, Sharon Flora, opened the nursery with a target to achieve between 50 to 75 per cent occupancy in its first year but it has now reached 95pc.

“The nursery has done really well, better than expected,” said Sharon.

“I have enjoyed this last year a lot we are very pleased with how well the nursery is doing.”

The event at Cottons Park Pavillon, Cottons Approach, Romford, saw children play traditional party games, decorate cakes and make party hats.

Free-funded places are offered for two to three-year-olds.
