From tipples to tots
by David Simister

A FORMER Burscough pub has begun a new lease of life as a nursery, the site's operators have said this week.

The team behind plans to transform The Junction, on Junction Lane, said that after an extensive refurbishment the site has now reopened as Munchkins Village Nursery, which caters for West Lancashire youngsters between the age of three months and five years of age.

The Champion reported that planning permission was secured last June to turn the former pub into a nursery catering for up to 75 children, and since then both the interior and exterior have been revamped.

Claire Ainscough told The Champion: “It's quite a transformation from the tired old building, and it has now become an extra feature of the conservation area rather than a blight on it.”

“The blocked up windows were reinstated, which is where the bar was previously located.”
