Newsletter To Net Support For Nurseries

A campaign group set up to save under-threat nurseries has launched an online newsletter.

The initiative by the Save Our Nurseries Campaign is “to keep parents up to date with changes occurring in the nursery sector”.

It follows the formation of a cross-party group set up to decide which Edinburgh schools and nurseries will face the axe.

The group was formally established at a meeting of the city council’s education committee earlier this week.

It comes after council chiefs were forced back to the drawing board earlier this year on plans to close 22 schools and nurseries.

A campaign spokeswoman said: “Much of the political jargon is not easy to understand, which is why now we have this newsletter. Parents are welcome to add views or send an e-mail to the editor.”
