Runcorn & Widnes Weekly News - - Your Views -

CHIL­DREN’S cen­tres in Widnes will be hold­ing wel­come days this Novem­ber.

A Hal­ton Bor­ough Coun­cil spokesman said the events are for fam­i­lies who are not reg­is­tered with the lo­cal author­ity, have never used one of the premises and have a child un­der five years old.

The ses­sions are tak­ing place at Dit­ton Chil­dren’s Cen­tre from 10am-noon on Mon­day, Novem­ber 13, and at Kingsway Chil­dren’s Cen­tre from 1-3pm on Mon­day, Novem­ber 20.

Staff will be show­ing fam­i­lies around the premises and show­ing the play ac­tiv­i­ties on of­fer, and also talk­ing about other avail­able ser­vices.

There will be taster ses­sions for chil­dren and re­fresh­ments. No book­ing is re­quired. Cllr Tom McIn­er­ney (chil­dren, young peo­ple and fam­i­lies) said: “Chil­dren’s cen­tres pro­vide many dif­fer­ent chil­dren and fam­ily ser­vices in­clud­ing ac­tiv­i­ties for par­ents, par­ents-tobe, their ba­bies, tod­dlers, young chil­dren and the rest of the fam­ily.

“They are lo­cated within your lo­cal com­mu­nity so you don’t have to travel far.

“All Hal­ton Chil­dren’s Cen­tres have dis­abled and wheel­chair ac­cess.”
