Lightwoods nursery children take on Muddy Puddle Walk

Published 29th March 2018

Tiny tots are getting ready to take on muddy puddles at a special Peppa Pig sponsored walk next month.

The children at Smarty Pants Nursery based at Lightwoods House in Bearwood will be taking part in the Muddy Puddle Walk in aid of Save The Children at Lightwoods Park on 23 April.

The children will be doing a circuit of the park helped by Peppa Pig characters along the way - before a splash in muddy puddles outside the nursery and some stories.

The little ones have also been learning about the plants and herbs in Shakespeare Garden at the house - which features plants and shrubs all mentioned in the playwright's work.
Nursery owner and manager Lydia Browning said: "Now the spring is here it's lovely for the children to get out in the garden a bit more. They're all very excited for the Muddy Puddle Walk and seeing the Peppa Pig characters and we're hoping to raise some money for a good cause while we have some fun." 

Lightwoods House opened in January 2018 having been extensively restored thanks to a £5.2million project funded by the council, Big Lottery fund (BIG) and Heritage Lottery Fund (HLF).

The nursery opened last September in a brand new building next to the house, designed to look like the old stables.
