Council services during the COVID-19 outbreak

Maintaining essential services to support your health and wellbeing

Activities at Hurdsfield Children's Centre

In light of the current situation regarding Covid-19, a decision has been made to cancel our children centre sessions at Hurdsfield Children's Centre.

Our key focus is the health and safety of children and parents as well as our own staff and families, and with this mind, the sessions will be paused for 4 weeks and then reviewed.

Our Facebook pages will be kept up-to-date with any advice or guidance we can bring you.

Further information about accessing health clinics and midwifery clinics at the children’s centres will be shared as it becomes available.
