A Welwyn Garden City nursery celebrated its 70th birthday with Welwyn Hatfield mayor Pat Mabbott and numerous former pupils.

Around 350 people flocked to Ludwick Nursery School in Holwell Road to enjoy the event earlier this month, which was combined with its annual open day.

It involved several activities for the children, such as colouring and making Mickey Mouse ears, while former pupils were given a tour and shown their old registers.

The nursery itself has 200 children aged two to five, and deals with about 3,000 families through its children centre.

Headteacher Karen James said: “It was really exciting to have so many people with so many happy memories of the school, and to welcome so many families who hope to send their children here in the coming years.

“It was a really great occasion with lots of fun for everyone.”
