IT WILL be children, children everywhere now a new extension has been added to the Hunnitots nursery at Ipswich Hospital.

A £250,000 grant to the NHS Trust means that the on-site nursery can now almost double their intake of children, enabling more parents to go back to work.

With the new extension up to 118 children can be registered, where before only 60 could be cared for.

An exhibition of the children's artwork depicting all the stages of the building work is on show in the extension.
