OVERNIGHT flooding will see a Horsham nursery shut for two days.

Horsham Nursery School and Children and Families Centre will be closed on Monday and Tuesday (August 17 and 18) following serious water damage, said a West Sussex County Council spokeswoman.

“The building, in Harwood Road, was flooded overnight on Friday (August 14) as a result of the heavy downpours,” she said.

“It is hoped that the building will re-open on Wednesday but the final decision will be taken early next week when there is a better understanding of the damage and how quickly it can be fixed.”

She said parents who used the centre could visit another local centre .
