Staff and parents of Ashgrove Playgroup will be holding an information day outside Ashgrove Community Centre on polling day (May 7).

It has been organised to make the community aware of cuts totalling £1.7 planned for Early Years funding, which could put playgroup jobs and children’s places at risk. There will also be a petition, which the playgroup is urging local people to sign. The playgroup, which will celebrate its 25th anniversary next year, has 48 children and seven staff.
