The vendors, Mr Howard and Mrs Margaret Beeley, decided to place the business on the market due to their wish to retire. Following a number of viewings, the business was sold to Ms. Amanda Crosthwaite, an experienced buyer who has run another childcare setting for over 10 years. Ms. Crosthwaite plans to build up the setting alongside her current childcare provision, and increase the size of the nursery. She plans to introduce a number of new features and events, such as a sensory room, holiday provision, weekend parties and a coffee morning for parents.

The vendors, Mr and Mrs Beeley, commented: “We would like to convey our thanks to Redwoods Dowling Kerr and in particular out negotiator, Sarah Ellison, for her help in the sale of ABC Childcare Centre.

“We found her help invaluable during the negotiations, especially with advice based on her experience in these matters. Her patience and tolerance were much appreciated.”

Sarah Ellison from Redwoods Dowling Kerr added: “Mr and Mrs Beeley had run this provision for over 10 years and it was a pleasure to help them find the right buyer so they can retire.

“Ms. Crosthwaite was local, experienced and passionate about continuing the work Mr and Mrs Beeley had provided the community for many years. I would like to wish both the buyer and the sellers all the luck in the future.”
