Aylesbury MP David Lidington visited our community centre again recently. This time, he was the guest of Aylesbury Vale Child Contact Centre (AVCCC) who have used our premises for over 20 years. Meeting on the first and third Saturdays of each month, they provide a safe place for children to meet with parents with whom they no longer live after relationship breakdown. They are run by trustees and a team of trained and dedicated volunteers.
Veronica Corben, Chair of AVCCC, said, "David Lidington came on a very busy morning and was very interested in all that was going on. He spoke to all the volunteers on duty, trustees and all the parents available. He was most impressed with our service and the kindness and the welcome we showed to him and to parents and children. He undertook to help us publicise the Centre via his social media contacts, as well as to write to all local head teachers to advertise our service further. He also wrote to the Ministry of Justice on our behalf regarding possible cessation of government funding, to which we have had a reply."
