A children’s centre in Chipperfield is holding a "Skills Workshop" throughout February and March.

The Lanes Children’s Centre, based in St Paul's School, in The Common, is putting on three workshops looking at helping children get ready for pre-school by preparing them in three key areas of learning.

The first workshop on February 6, between 9.30am and 11am, will focus on phonics. The second on February 28 will focus on reading and the third, on March 3, will focus on reading. All the sessions will be held at The Baptist Church, in High Street, Bovingdon.
