Lostock Hall children’s centre will also close on Wednesday, November 30, at 5pm.

The nearest children’s centres will be: Stoneygate, Preston; Wade Hall, Leyland.

The county council says this latest closure is part of plans to reduce the number of buildings it owns and rents, and form a network of multi-functional buildings known as neighbourhood centres, which will provide a base for a range of different services in one place.

The plans will result in changes to where some services are delivered in the future, including libraries, children’s services, children’s centres, young people’s centres, youth offending teams, older people’s daytime support services, adult disability day services and the registration service.
