Woodburn nursery fury

Angry parents have slammed plans to move nursery children out of a community centre and in to a “pub”.

Woodburn Community Nursery – based at Dalkeith Community Centre, which will close its doors later this year – is one of a number of groups being offered alternative accommodation at Dalkeith Miners’ Welfare Club.

But manager Denise Smith said: “I don’t think it’s suitable for a nursery to be run at a pub.

“If Midlothian Council had consulted with me in the first place, they would have known it’s not suitable for me.”
