Activities at Oak Tree 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 affected centres are: Knutsford, Poynton, Broken Cross, Hurdsfield, Oak Tree, Monks Coppenhall, Sandbach including Alsager, Middlewich and Nantwich.

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 and The Brooks) remain open for midwifery clinics. 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.
