Surestart at the Mechanics

We understand that although the Stay and Play sessions at the Mechanics have been suspended for the moment, but that all is not lost, yet. We’ve been talking to parents and carers and Ward Councillors and we are offering to host a meeting at the Mechanics which will bring interested parties together to explore creatively ways in which this highly-valued service might continue at the Mechanics. We’ll do what we can and come back to you as soon as we have further news.
