COUNCIL CASH GIVES BOOST TO CHILDREN‟S CENTRE


T


wo local county councillors have given a big leg-up for plans to create a play area for a


local children‘s centre. County Councillors Paul Goggins (Abbots


Langley) and Derek Scudder (Woodside Stanborough) have each allocated the Abbots Langley Children‘s Centre £1,000 to go towards the cost of installing equipment and features including a climbing frame, chalk boards and a planted area outside the Boundary Way Community Rooms in Abbots Langley. The Children‘s Centre is a ‗hub‘ where families


with children under five can go for services such as post natal groups, baby massage, creative play and parenting support. The centre, which has more than 500 local


families on its books, also provides help and advice on issues such as returning to work and adult education. A total of £10,000 is available to each of the 77


members of Hertfordshire County Council to spend on worthwhile community projects in their area. The councillors said: ―The Children‘s Centre acts as a one-stop shop for a whole range of

services, activities and advice for families with young children in the local area, and they are keen to encourage more people to register so that they too can benefit from the support that is on offer. ―The new equipment and play space will make


good use of an area outside the Community Room and help to raise the profile of the Centre – as well as creating a nice, safe outdoor environment for children to play in and enjoy.‖ Locality budgets were launched in July 2009,


with funding to be used for worthy social, economic or environmental causes in Hertfordshire. For information on how to apply for funding
