One of the poignant reminders of what we lost when we built our new Nursery is this hundred square - so with a focus on loss I felt that it should be mono today.
All the area from the square to the fence was playground. HOWEVER - we had old shelters knocked down and have gained a great deal of additional playground to the right of the Nursery.
v2 shows the digger removing part of it - with the view of the park which was also lost from the playground
v3 is the temporary repair work
v4 the final repairs
Yesterday was the cutting of the ribbon and the speeches
The children started to use the building on Monday - and there were many tears, as their mobile classroom had literally gone - it was taken away during the Easter break. I'm also told that a parent brought their child on Monday, and without looking crossed the playground to the mobile and only looked up when he got there and wash also shocked that it had gone BlushBlushBlushBlushBlush

I hope the new will make as many happy memories as the old. It must be quite a shock for the kiddies....I hope they are excited about their new nursery.

Glad you recorded all you did, Helen.

I reckon once the kids get caught up in the swing of things, they'll quickly grow to love their new 'digs'.

You've documented this story right through and an Audio visual of the story would be lovely for local records.
I'm sure the benefits of the new will outweigh the sentiment of the past and already you're capturing
some exciting new images.

Very sad when old buildings disappear - I live practically opposite a primary school, and though I never attended it (I lived in Leeds when I was young) it was sad to see it demolished and replaced with a new one about 3 years ago, but at least I did get some photos of the old school! Smile

Good job the kids didn't see their playground destroyed!
So often it makes me wonder what is gained by wasting public money, after all it is our money and should be used to make the kid happy not sad.

Mono is very fitting!

It'll take sometime to get used to this, but looks nice from your viewpoint.
