Sadness as Horndon Village Playgroup set to close

THE HORNDON Village Playgroup is set to close.The popular playgroup situated on the village high street had been in negotiation with Thurrock Council but it appears that matters have now fallen through.A spokesperson for Thurrock Council said: “It is regrettable that the current private supplier of Horndon Village Playgroup has decided to end the service as of January 2017. The Council was willing to support the provision beyond this period but this offer was declined.Thurrock Council remains committed to providing sustainable, high quality childcare provision in Horndon and has begun the process of testing the market to find a suitable alternative which will begin from January 2017 so there is minimal disruption to parents who use the service.”In the meantime, we will provide advice and support to parents to enable them to access alternative childcare in the area should they wish to do so.
