New nursery to create 14 jobs following £600,000 investment
A NEW day care nursery in Bangor has created 14 jobs in a £600,000 investment.
The Red Brick House Nursery on the town's Princetown Road has been been opened by former primary school teacher Julie Morrison.
The facility will cater for 60 children.
Ms Morrison said there was potential for staff numbers to grow beyond 14 after the first year of trading.
The nursery was supported by Ulster Bank.
“I purchased and redeveloped a large detached property overlooking the marina with the support of Ulster Bank and I am now opening a modern day care nursery,” said Ms Morrison.
“It is an investment of around £600,000, including the purchase and development of the property. We have taken on five people so far and expect to grow the workforce to 14 within 12 months."
Head of the Ulster Bank's Belfast and North Down Business Centre Tracey Morrow said: “Julie has purchased a fantastic double-fronted Victorian house and has resourced and furnished it with high-quality equipment.
"She has a great location, close to the town centre, and is well-placed to make a success of her business. We are very pleased to support her and have the capacity to do so for many great local companies across Northern Ireland.”
