The fate of a centre for disabled children will be discussed at a cabinet meeting today.

The closure of Nascot Lawn Respite Centre, Langley Road was announced on Friday, June 16.

The centre which looks after disabled children with severe medical needs while their families rest, is due to close on October 31 due to funding cuts from the Herts Valley Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG).

The issue will be challenged today at the Hertfordshire County Council meeting by Labour councillor for children’s services Nigel Bell.

An online petition has received more than 10,000 signatures fighting to save the centre.

The meeting at County Hertford, will look at any petitions from the county which have more than 250 signatures of people who live or work in the county.
