Fight for the Five March

A fantastic turnout at today’s march and rally, where hundreds of parents, children and campaigners took to the streets in support of the fight for the five campaign to save Salford’s five ‘outstanding’ nurseries.

It was amazing to welcome and speak alongside Shadow Education Secretary Angela Rayner, who spoke passionately about how important early years provisions are to children. I read a statement from Labour Leader Jeremy Corbyn who gave his support to the campaign; and heard speeches by parents, nursery workers, union officials, Salford Mayor Paul Dennett, and local MPs Barbara Keeley and Graham Stringer.

Government and ministers must now listen, and act to help Salford Council save these nurseries.
