Neddy Welcome Home Neddy! 
We are so grateful to The Rocking Horse Shop in Fangfoss, York for completely renovating our beautiful Neddy. 
He has been with our nursery for over 30 years and has been loved by so many of our children (and staff/volunteers) over the years.  He was looking very much the worse for wear, paint had chipped and worn off, his main and tail were bald, he really had seen better days.  So our Fundraiser, Kay Smith began her mission to get a quote to have him renovated. 
Kay contacted Jane Cook, the Managing Director of The Rocking Horse Shop.  She was over the moon when Jane said they would collect Neddy, renovate him and deliver him home free of charge.  What an amazing ‘New Year’ gift for all our children when he came home at the beginning of term.  He is absolutely beautiful.  Huge thanks to Jane Cook and your team at the Rocking Horse Shop Neddy will now be able to continue to bring joy to our children for many more years to come.
