Public invited to centre’s opening

- Tocumwal Leonie Cardillo

For those who have been excited to watch the constructi­on progress, Tocumwal’s Little Explorers are inviting our community to an informal open day at the new, purpose-built childcare centre on Jerilderie Street, Tocumwal.

The doors will open to the public on Saturday from 9am to 2pm.

What a great opportunit­y for those who are interested in exploring the new centre, and talking about the exciting upcoming program.

If you are bringing children with you, please make sure they are supervised.

I was lucky enough to get a sneak peek at the facility and was amazed at the transforma­tion that has taken place.

It is obvious that a huge amount of hard work has gone into the design and constructi­on of the centre, which will have 68 places available for children aged six weeks-old to school age.

These places are much needed in our community, and will be warmly welcomed by many families.

Congratula­tions to Donna Boaden and Steph Chappell on creating such a wonderful asset for our community - you truly have thought of everything. •••

Tocumwal Ambulance Steering Committee is in discussion­s with another local group who may come on board and offer a similar type of support to the group.
