Parents, carers, families, and children are invitedto visit the events and see what their local children’s centre has to offer for them.

In the Sleaford area, it will see:

Coun Patricia Bradwell, executive councillor for children’s services, described children’s centres as ‘a lifeline for so many families with young children’.

She said: “All our children’s centres are intended to help all parents or carers from the community and surrounding villages so find out what the centre near you can offer.”
