Families in Jarrow are invited to have fun and find out about facilities at their local Children's Centre at an open afternoon in celebration of National Sure Start Week.

The open event is taking place on Tuesday 15th September at Jarrow Children's Centre in Staple Road, between 1.30pm until 3pm.

Local people are encouraged to come along on the day to have a look around the premises, meet the staff and find out about the facilities the centre has to offer for children under the age of five and their families.
