Save Hampden Nursery in Camden
Public sector union Unison has protested with parents against the closure of Hampden Nursey in Camden, London. Already two other nurseries have closed in the area.
The Labour council is cutting its early-years budget by £600,000. The campaign says: "We believe the council can best support low-income families by providing low-cost, council-subsidised places for children from the end of maternity leave."
They call on councillor Angela Mason "not to agree to options 1, 2, or 3 in the consultation" and local MP Keir Starmer "to support our campaign" and "raise our opposition in the local Labour Party."
