Mytchett Sure Start Centre to remain open

Elaine Thurlow - Sure StartFamilies in the Mytchett, Deepcut and Frimley Green area have been celebrating today at the news that the Mytchett Sure will remain open.

Surrey County Council have withdrawn its plans to move forward with a formal consultation on the future of the centre.

In a letter to parents and carers Head Teacher of Mytchett Primary School Jo Ibbotson said ” I am absolutely delighted to be able to share with you that in a review of the strategy and plans for improving outcomes for children and families, Surrey County Council has withdrawn its plan to implement a formal consultation process regarding the future of Mytchett SureStart Children’s Centre. This is excellent news as it means that our centre is no longer under threat of closure at the current time”.

Local residents and supporters of the centre campaigned exceptionally hard to keep the centre open. One supporter who used the centre in the past even campaigned from as far as New Zealand when she heard about the news.

This is very welcome news and on behalf of the Residents Network I would like to congratulate those residents who campaigned tirelessly to keep the centre open.
