Children at Coldingham Nursery have been left sad and upset after vandals damaged their new outdoor play equipment before they had even had a chance to use it.

The children and their parents worked hard to raise the £1000 to develop their new outdoor learning space, plus they got a grant from the Scottish Borders Council Jubilee Fund.

Head teacher Mr D Ward said: “After the purchasing and installation of a ‘story telling chair”, two wigwams, and eight information boards, we were extremely disappointed to be informed that some of those lovely resources had been vandalised the very day they had been installed.

“Another incident took place over the Easter holiday when a ‘willow whale’ was targeted. The PFA, with the help of pupils, painstakingly planted a willow tunnel in the shape of a whale in the school grounds.

“Ties at the top of this were untied and part of the structure was damaged.”

Police are investigating the incident and anyone with any information is asked to contact Eyemouth Police Station.
