I was very sad when I heard that Wyndley have closed the creche. This is a permanent closure because the management team at Wyndley have decided that the creche is not financially sustainable.
It is a real shame that decisions taken by our local health and leisure facility are made on whether it is ‘financially viable’ rather than is it good for the people in the local community. Clearly SE Fitness has an interest and I am happy to declare it. Young parents were a key demographic for our daytime groups and we have missed them since the closure of the creche as they struggle to make alternative arrangements for childcare.
I also have a personal interest because the creche was a life saver for me when little John was small as it enabled me to go for a run, get some time for myself while he was looked after close to hand. I know several women in SE Fitness feel the same way and we feel sad for the young parents (mainly women) of today who cannot make use of this facility.
If you feel the same please consider signing this petition to reinstate the creche at Wyndley:
