I moved on this afternoon to the 5th Birthday Party for the Ireland Wood Children's Centre...

Ireland Wood Children's Centre is the only Children's Centre in Leeds run by a company limited by guarantee with charitable status. The Centre achieved Children's Centre status in 2006 and was officially opened by the Lord Mayor in July 2006. However, the centre has been providing childcare and family support since June 2004 when they were known as Little Acorns and were based at Ralph Thoresby High School.

It was great to visit and see the brilliant work that Linda Parkin, the Centre Manager, and her team are doing working alongside Ian Blackburn and his great team at Ireland Wood Primary School. The birthday party was also attended by Greg Mulholland MP and we were treated to an 'Old MacDonald had a Farm' sing and sign session by the children. Brilliant!
