One of the longest running nurseries in Paisley, the nursery currently operates out of a purpose-built property that opened in 2006, with the business originally established in April 1996. Jennyswell Nursery has expanded organically over the years to offer day nursery provision as well as out of school care for two local schools.

Former owners Bernadette & David Findlay are retiring to spend more time with their family. Bernadette comments, “We would like to thank Martin and Emma for their support and guidance over the past few months, making the process of closing this 22 year chapter of our lives a little less stressful.”

The successful buyer Andy Poddar, owner of Little Learners and Abbey Nurseries in Paisley is delighted to continue the great work established by Bernadette, David and their team. Andy comments, “We are happy to have finally got the deal done. Lots to do but another fine nursery marketed by Christie & Co. Thanks to Martin & the team.”

Martin Daw, Director at Christie & Co who brokered the sale adds, “I’m very pleased that we have been able to assist Bernadette & David with the sale of the nursery. I wish them a happy and well-deserved retirement and believe they have secured a great new owner for Jennyswell Nursery who will ensure it continues to serve the families of Paisley as it has done for so many years.”
