In a bid to secure vital children's services, Liverpool Local Authority has announced the merger of a number of Surestart Centres; as a result Speke and Garston Children Centres have been merged.
No need to panic, all services will remain the same and we will be keeping both buildings open. Julie Taylor has now retired as Manager of the Garston site and Susan Roberts will take overall responsibility for both Centres.
A big thank you to Julie for her many years of service to the families and children in the Garston area and I'm sure you would all like to join us in wishing her a happy and well deserved retirement.
As for the future, we couldn't be in better hands. With a proven track record of 18 years serving the Speke Garston community, Susan is looking forward to the new challenges ahead.
So, watch this space...
What a fantastic day we had in the beautiful Palm House in Sefton Park.
We enjoyed story and rhyme time, balls and parachutes games, outdoor free-play activities, planting, bird boxes, face paints and tattoos, dance workshops, book swap, a mini beast hunt and not forgetting our picnic in the park.
We also had guest appearances from Peppa Pig, Gruffallo and the Bookstart Bunny who rocked the house with their Everybunny Dance moves.
Thank you to the Palm House for letting us hold our event in your amazing building. Thanks to all the Children Centre staff, Friends of Millwood, MD Dance School and New Futures for providing transport to and from the park.
