October 1984

A much-needed preschool – the first county-run one in West Craven – was given a civic send-off on Monday when the Mayor of Pendle, Coun. Peggy Heaton. officially opened the venture.
An annexe at Gisburn Road School, Barnoldswick, has been adapted at a cost of over £44,000 by Lancashire Education Committee to cater for children from three-years old. The Mayor described the new preschool as splendid. “This is certainly needed and, in fact, we need more," she said.
Gisburn Road School head Mr Les Garner said the preschool catered for 52 children, although 150 names were submitted.
