Parents and governors were also among the guests at the celebration.

Headteacher Mark Seymour said: “It’s an immensely exciting day for us. We have had a nursery here for many years but this facility is comfortably the best-equipped, most up-to-date early years and foundation stage facility in the locality.”

The new nursery classroom is a modern, light and airy space for learning and play.

Mr Rawlingson, who arrived in full mayoral regalia alongside town mace-bearer Don Cox, was treated to two songs by Winchester House pupils.

He thanked the school and assembled guests for the honour as he cut the ribbon.

Future developments at Winchester House are due to include a new hall and an all-weather pitch.

Parents and children can visit the new nursery at a special ‘Come & Play’ session next Tuesday, October 8, running from 2.30pm to 3.30pm.

Families are invited to bring their little ones and experience all the fun the nursery children have in their new classroom. Toddlers and babies are welcome. Contact registrar Helen Odell on 01280 846480 for details.
