YOUNGSTERS at a village pre-school are celebrating as work is under way to build them a new home.
Stowupland Pre-school is currently based in a classroom at the primary school near Stowmarket, but from September a purpose-built building will open in the school grounds.
The new facilities, which have cost more £100,000, will include a sensory area, garden and outdoor play area and has been funded with the help of grants from organizations including Suffolk County Council.
