Will festive video go viral? St Michael’s Nursery in Barnstaple is racking up the social media views for its Christmas video debut

Staff at St Michael’s Nursery in Barnstaple have been getting into the festive spirit after starring in their first Christmas video.

Now they are hoping to get as many views online as they can and spread festive cheer as far as possible.

The video shows staff members running, falling, playing and generally having fun as they showcase the many activities on offer indoors and outdoors at the nursery.

It was put together by out-of-school activities co-ordinator Katie Webber and nursery manager Sarah Sexon said they hoped it showcased what their nursery was all about.

St Michael’s Nursery went it alone and opened new premises at Sticklepath after the close of St Michael’s School at Tawstock.

Sarah said: “We were thinking of doing something different for Christmas and we are really proud that five years on from being a nursery in a school we are now a really strong stand-alone nursery.

“We came up with the really great idea of putting together a video of everything we do and it just shows what a fun-loving team we are.”

The nursery is proud of its outdoor an out-of-school activities, which includes its all-weather outdoor area and a forest school, plus activities such as tennis, rugby, street dancing and music, all of which can be seen on the video.
