Eastcotts Children's Centre
Eastcotts Children’s Centre will be moving
from Shortstown Lower School site to the New Shorts Building, which
was formerly RAF Cardington.
The Children’s Centre is due to open its doors
at its new location from July 2011. In the meantime, individuals
can still visit the Children’s Centre staff for advice and
information in a temporary office at Shortstown Lower School from
the 25th April. Eastcotts Children’s Centre staff will
still continue to deliver activities from a variety of venues in
Shortstown and Cotton End.
Moving the Children’s Centre to the Shorts
Building will enable families to enjoy a new purpose built
Children’s Centre right in the heart of a future community
comprising in excess of 1,500 new homes in addition to those in the
existing settlement of Shortstown.
Chris Hilliard, Executive Director for
Children’s Services, Schools and Families at Bedford Borough
Council, said: “The centre will be situated in an ideal position.
It will be in walking distance from retail units, a medical centre,
a lower school, and more community facilities.”
