Sure start

Managed to catch the end of the Surestart centre launch at Hardmoor School. Surestart has had a bit of a mixed press but there have been some good projects in Southampton and it was heartening that all of the health professionals seemed very positive about the joint working that is such a feature of the school.
It seemed odd to recall that when I was first elected Hardmoor was under threat of closure (it too had been through a difficult spell) but it was given a reprieve and seems to be thriving today. Recalling this made me feel a little more cheerful about the future of Ampfield School.
