New kids club

A new service of wrap around school care for children in Thorne and Moorends is to be launched next month.

Martin Hookway and his wife, both experienced childcare workers, are setting up a voluntary-led breakfast and after school club at Marshland Primary School, Marshland Road, Moorends.

The club, which will open on June 6 will be staffed by fully trained playworkers and Early Years practitioners catering for children aged three to 13.

The clubs are open 7am to 9am and 3pm to 7pm for all children in Thorne and Moorends .

Admittance and interest forms are available from the Sure Start Children’s Centre, Fieldside, Thorne or the Hedgerow Children’s Centre, Marshland Road, Moorends.

An open day is planned once forms have been returned to Marshland Primary School.
