As I come to the end of my term as a county councillor a number of projects with which I have been connected are inevitably continuing without me. But for one of these at least the end is in sight! This week it was good to be able to attend the groundbreaking ceremony for the new Lavenham Pre School which will move to a new building adjacent to the Village Hall in the autumn.
When planning permission for the extension was sought some time ago, the fee being financed by my locality budget, finding the full funding for the project was thought to be a considerable challenge. However thanks to a special grant from the Department of Education, skillfully accessed by Early Years officers at the County Council, the full amount of money is now available and building work will commence very shortly.
The Pre School has been offering a great service to parents at Lavenham School for some time now, but has been constrained by a shortage of space and the need to leave the premises by 12 noon every day. The new Pre School will be able to offer all day, morning or afternoon care, plus after school and holiday clubs, for children from age 2 to school age in a new purpose built facility surrounded by green playspace.
Further information can be obtained from Katherine Eves, the Pre School Manager, at email@example.com
