Ten mothers who live at Elvetham Heath, the huge new development north of Fleet, are setting up a new pre-school for the area.

The development already has a primary school and church and will soon have a supermarket of its own.

The Little Elves Community Pre-school will meet at the Elvetham Heath Community Centre and the emphasis will be on play.

It will be open to children from outside the estate.

The committee is looking for staff.

Said Alison Fazakerley, chairman of the committee: "We need support from local residents and businesses. We are applying for all available grants, but also asking residents and companies for cash and equipment donations to make our Little Elves a reality."
