Carlisle West Newtown Sure Start Children's Centre is holding a celebration event for all local parents and their children to celebrate achievement.

Mrs. Nicky Robley, Children's Services Manager explained:

"We look forward to hosting this celebration event as a thank you to all the children and parents who have made this Newtown Children's Centre an Outstanding Centre.

"We have been humbled to see the progress that families have made at the Centre in such a short period of time and would like to celebrate this success. "

Children's Centres are places that offer access to a range of support for families with children aged 0-19 years, through offering accessible services for all parents with more support targeted at those who need it most.
