Response from Katie Brown, Service Manager for Ashfield Health Visiting, Children Centres and School Nursing Teams, Children and Young People Services, Health Partnerships

This sounds like it's been another successful event at Kirkby Children's Centre with everyone enjoying the activities. The team worked really hard this summer to provide families with fun events that are free at point of entry, but parents had asked if some voluntary fund raising could happen and the team supported this which is wonderful. These comments are great to hear and all comments will help us plan for our next school holiday events. Thank you
