HELP and support was on offer to parents of young children and parents-to-be at a specialist event.

There was a range of help and information available, plus hair and beauty treatments courtesy of Hartlepool College of Further Education at the event held at Mill House Leisure Centre, in Raby Road.

The support event was organised by Hartlepool Borough Council’s Family Support Service.

Children accompanied parents and there was arts and crafts plus other attractions to keep youngsters entertained.

Jo-Ann Bage, family support worker at the council, said: “There is lots of advice help and support available in the town for parents and the event was designed to showcase some of the services on offer.”
