Pendle mums and families were able to voice their concerns over the rising cost of childcare during a visit from two MPs.

Shadow public health minister Luciana Berger and shadow children’s minister Yvonne Fovargue arrived at Colne Children’s Centre on the much-talked about “Woman to Woman” campaign bus.

They were greeted by Labour’s Parliamentary Candidate for Pendle, Azhar Ali, who worked with the pair to discuss Labour’s pledge to increase free childcare and save Sure Start Centres.

Coun. Ali said: “It was fantastic to welcome Luciana and Yvonne to Colne.

“This centre was built under a Labour Government and Labour will ensure that not only do we deliver more services in such facilities, but will increase free childcare to 25 hours per week for four and five year olds.

“This will help parents in returning to work and making sure that work pays.”
