They are child-centred environments that provide toys, games and facilities that reflect the diverse needs of children affected by family breakdown.

Wiltshire Air Ambulance unveiled a new state-of-the-art chopper on Friday 24 October when it landed in Trafalgar Park. The new Bell 429 helicopter will officially take to the skies on New Year’s Day while pilots and crews train to fly the machine for the rest of this year.
As part of the launch at Trafalgar Park in Downton, patients whose lives have been saved by the Wiltshire paramedics were able to meet crew members. Wessex Community Action provided their transport services by carrying these patients and the general public to and from the event.
