Labour have condemned proposed County Council cuts to children's services across the county and are fighting hard to defend vital services and opportunities for children and young people in the face of Tory cuts.
Patrick Davies, candidate and former Councillor in St Luke ward, is a Trustee at the Carroll Centre at Stanmore and a Governor at the Lanterns Nursery School in Bereweeke Road. "Both centres are threatened by the Tory Government and County Council in the latest round of cuts along with Sparklers in Winnall. The last Labour Government's Sure Start programme provided impressive support for local children and families. The Coalition Government of the Tories and the Liberal Democrats began dismantling the programme. The final end is now threatened and we must fight to protect these vital services in our community."
