A NEW children’s nursery will open on the Heyford Park housing development in Upper Heyford early next year, creating a number of jobs.

The Old Station Nursery is part of a chain, launched in 2002, which runs seven childcare centres in the county.

The firm was chosen by developer Dorchester Living, after the Park Keepers nursery was demolished in July to make way for the new housing.

Building work on the new nursery starts at the end of this month.
