Mum Marie Magness and her daughter Alex Magness have long-time knowledge of the Puddleducks Under-Fives nursery in Lawley - Marie used to take Alex there when she was a little one herself.

They both decided to take the plunge and buy the five-days-a-week term-time nursery business at Lawley Community Centre and with the support of parents, the council and employees, they are celebrating a huge success.

Marie, 50, said: "We have good support from staff and parents and the local authority has also been really supportive of what we do so we are all working together.

"We have a loyal team of staff who are so supportive of what we do.

"We have 45 under-fives on our roll as a daycare nursery that has been working in term times since 1994.
