A village nursery celebrated its silver jubilee with a special party this week.

The Granta Montessori School in Shepreth has been open for 25 years, and held a party at Shepreth Village Hall on Tuesday to mark the occasion.

Dianne Sinnatamby set up the nursery school in the living room of her home in 1989. Shortly afterwards, it moved to Shepreth village hall from where it has continued to serve children from a very wide catchment area.

Mrs Sinnatamby said: “We are extremely proud of our achievements and success and would like to invite past pupils and parents to a reunion with ‘Pancakes and Drinks’ at midday on Tuesday July 22, on the Recreation Ground at Shepreth Village Hall.”

Any former parents or pupils who would like to attend should contact Dianne Sinnatamby on 01223 502992 or
