St Albans nursery’s Titanic link
AS THE world marked the 100th anniversary of the sinking of the Titanic this week, a St Albans nursery was also exploring its own links with the famous ship.
Busy Bees Nursery, on King Harry Lane, is situated in a building which was designed by the chairman of White Star Line, the company that owned the Titanic.
Much of the d�cor inside is inspired by the Titanic, including the wood panelling which is exactly the same as that used on the ill-fated ship.
One of the most exciting features of the building is a chalk drawing of a ship etched into a wall in the basement. It is believed that this was a design for the next boat to be made by the White Star Line.
To mark the historic occasion, children and staff at the nursery dressed in nautical-themed outfits and took part in a number of fun activities, including floating and sinking exercises, treasure hunts and making boats.

Deputy Mayor Geoff Harrison also went to look around the building last week and was highly impressed by what he saw.
The Mayoress later joined the celebrations at a cheese and wine evening where members of the public were invited to have a look around.
