A series of open days for families are being held at Children’s Centres across Swindon by national charity 4Children.
4Children’s Borough Manager Sue Deedigan said: “We are opening our doors and inviting families in to get involved in some exciting activities and find out more about the wide range of services our children’s centres have to offer them.
“We have a packed autumn timetable for all the family which includes cookery courses, fun filled play sessions for children and advice for mums who want to go back to work.”
