Cambridge Labour Party has called a demonstration today against the Conservative-controlled County Council's proposed £1m austerity cuts to Cambridgeshire children's centres, which will involve closing 30 of 40. (The Council's Children and Young People Committee is meeting at 2 p.m. to discuss the cuts.) These important centres offer family support, advice about education and childcare, parenting courses, and play sessions. The Cambridge People's Assembly supports this demonstration and will bring its banner.
