David offers support to Moffat's Small n Tall

Dumfriesshire MP David Mundell has added his name to the calls as Moffat looks for a future childcare solution.

The town was left shocked by the news that Small n Tall is set to close it's doors at the end of the month and the MP is keen to find a solution going forward, to help families who are dependent on the service.

Commenting David Mundell MP said: "This is a real shock for the town and I am keen to know more about the reasons why Small N Tall are set to close later this month.

"The community must come together in order to find an urgent solution in order to provide families needing childcare and all options must be explored.

"I hope that council representatives can come to the extraordinary general meeting and outline what their plans are going forward as a matter of urgency in order for families in the area to be put at ease.

"Small N Tall has been a vital resource for families and I would hope that a solution can be found that would offer similar high levels of childcare."
