Wow, time really does fly. Incredibly it’s almost five years since I launched this website. I’ve written thirty-odd blogs in that time, but one in particular will always stand out.
I’ve never sought to build a narrative through this blog, but reading over past articles two themes stand out: the importance of social justice and the power of education to build a better world. These two themes really fused in “every so often you meet someone special.”
Apologies, I’m a bit late publishing this newsletter online! Hopefully the content is still interesting, even if slightly dated now! If you’d like to receive future newsletters hot off the press just drop me an email: firstname.lastname@example.org
There is always an alternative to closing Children’s Centres – you just need to be creative and determined.
I pleased to recently launch a new Labour Friends of Sure Start pamphlet highlighting some of the great work by Labour Councils in protecting their Sure Start Centres The pamphlet also objectively proves that Tory Councils have closed more Centres than Labour Councils. And it shows that Centres in Labour areas are more likely to be rated Good or Outstanding, whilst Centres in Tory areas are more likely to be rated Inadequate or Requiring Improvement.
It was a pleasure to the launch the pamphlet with our new LFoSS patron, Yvette Cooper MP as well as Shadow Children’s Ministers Jenny Chapman MP and Sharon Hodgson MP, and brilliant LFoSS supporter Catherine West MP.
The pamphlet is an excellent read – take a look and let me know what you think!
