Vauxhall Children's Centre officially open!
This afternoon Mayor of Lambeth Christopher Wellbelove and Kate Hoey MP officially opened the Vauxhall Children's Centre at Vauxhall Primary School.
It was a fantastic afternoon, with singing from Year Five pupils, music, cake and celebration.
The Centre has actually been up and running since 2008, providing a wealth of services to pre-school children, and crucially their parents and families.
The Centre is the 30th to open in Lambeth, and is one of more than 3000 centres opened since the Labour government came to power. The Tories have indicated they will slash the service and means-test SureStart so only the poorest will benefit from its services.
In her speech at the opening ceremony Kate Hoey said 'this government will go down in history for setting up children's centres'.
