Activities at Monks Coppenhall Children's Centre

In light of the current situation regarding Covid-19, a decision has been made to close some of our children centres of Monday 23 March 2020. The effected centres are: 

  • Knutsford
  • Poynton
  • Broken Cross
  • Hurdsfield
  • The Brooks
  • Sandbach including Alsager and Middlewich

If you have a midwife clinic appointment at one of these centres, you will be contacted by a community midwife to inform you of your new appointment venue. 

Our other children centres (Oakenclough, Ash Grove, Congleton, Monks Coppenhall and Oak Tree) remain open for midwifery clinics/lactation clinics only. All other children centre/health visitor sessions remain paused as per earlier communication. 

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