Guy Nicholson visited the wonderful Woodrgrove Children’s centre with the Shadow Children and Families Minister Sharon Hodgson today. Woodgrove is facing closure by Tory KCC despite our local Tory MP saying, as a candidate in 2009, that all of our local children’s centres were safe under a Conservative government.

This broken promise is a grave concern for families who use Woodgrove and the impact it will have will be considerable.

Guy Nicholson said ‘the Labour Party introduced Children’s centres such as these and parents, children and local communities have seen great benefits as a result. This closure is a great worry and should not go ahead.’
