Alan Whitehead MP today visited the Shirley Branch of the Southampton Children's Play Association.
Southampton Children's Play Association is a registered charity which runs a network of play centres around Southampton. The centres provide free play facilities for children aged 5-12 in some of the more deprived areas of the city.
Speaking after the visit, Alan said:"The Southampton Children's Play Association provide a fantastic service, free of charge, which means that children of all backgrounds and cultures have access to safe and secure play facilities. It was great to be able to meet the staff and children today and to learn more about the work that the centre does.
