The Early Years Support Forum has been piloted from January 2017 at Normandy Children's Centres for parental and practitioner support for families with under-fives on the third Wednesday of every month between 12.30-2.30pm.
Attached are parent and practitioner leaflets with further information that may be given out.
Please feel free to recommend the forum to parents or to come along yourself if you wish to speak to education, health and social care professionals about a particular child that you have worries about. This is not a service, however recommendations from professionals will be made to support you or the parent to decide which action to take to move forward.
Unfortunately, there is no crèche facility and it is not suitable for children to be in the forum. If this will stop a parent from attending, please contact Jacqui Griffinon 020 3045 3132 or Jacqui.email@example.com to discuss it further.
Improvement works - Gravel Hill, Bexleyheath (A220)
From 15 May work will begin on the construction of two new roundabouts on A220 at Gravel Hill, at the junctions with Albion Road and Watling Street/Broadway. It is likely to have a significant impact on traffic and journeys times from June.
The new roundabouts will replace the existing traffic lights and should be completed by November. Work will also take place to re-pave footpaths, add dedicated cycle lanes, improve road crossing facilities for pedestrians and cyclists and improve drainage and street lighting.
The first few weeks of the works will involve the removal of the existing traffic islands and should have minimal impact on traffic.
In mid-June, construction will begin on new footpaths and cycle lanes on the west side of Gravel Hill (Marriott Hotel side) between Watling Street/Broadway and the Albion Road junction. Temporary traffic lights will be in place at various points to facilitate the works and access to
and from Broadway and Albion Road will vary.
Bus services will be maintained but some routes may be altered temporarily.
London Borough of Bexley apologises in advance for any inconvenience that may result during these improvements.
For general information email BTCR@bexley.gov.uk, or call 020 8303 7777 and ask to speak with a member of the BTCR team.
The works are part of the final phase of the Bexleyheath Town Centre Revitalisation (BTCR) improvements, which started on Albion Road in January. They will help to ensure that Bexleyheath remains a vibrant town centre and achieves its full potential.
