There will be a rally on Saturday 27 October at 12pm on the lawn in front of the Civic Centre (Chorley Road, Swinton M27 5DA).
I will be attending this rally and we need as many people to attend as possible to show support for our nurseries and to pressure the Government to provide funding so that we can keep them open.
I hope to see you at the rally on 27 October.
More widely on this campaign – I am very pleased that so many Labour MPs showed their support for our five outstanding nurseries at Labour Party Conference in September. Tracy Brabin MP, Shadow Early Years Minister, is supporting this campaign and Julie Cooper MP will now be leading a group in Parliament specifically focussing on local authority nurseries. We will be requesting a debate with an Education Minister. It is important that we have as much support in Parliament as possible so that we can put pressure on Nadim Zahawi MP, Children’s Minister, and his Conservative colleagues in the Education Department.
