Pre-school meeting for Jurby parents

Working parents in Jurby can have their say on plans for future pre-school facilities in the village today (Friday).

Michael MHK Alf Cannan has called a meeting at Jurby school at 3pm where he wants to hear from existing and soon to be new parents at the school.

Mr Cannan's concerned that from September, pre-school sessions will operate on three mornings only.

That's a big reduction on the whole-day sessions currently offered five days a week, used by many working mums in Jurby.

The new classes are being offered by the Children's Centre, which stepped-in when no other lease holder applied for the lease for Jurby pre-school. The charity says it will assess local need once the sessions are running.
