THE closure of Abronhill Nursery School now appears all but certain after councillors voted it through last week.
Members of North Lanarkshire Council’s learning and leisure committee voted 13-10 in favour of moving the nursery into classrooms at St Lucy’s Primary School.
While the final vote will not take place until the next full council meeting on March 24, a reversal seems unlikely.
The council carried out a public consultation prior to the vote and claims this will result in improved education while also saving £125,000 annually.
