MOTHERS leading the Save Our Children’s Centres Hampshire campaign have collected half of their targeted 32,000 signatories to protest against county council proposals to close centres.

Catherine Ovenden and Kate Reynolds say they were delighted to reach the landmark – with the 16,000th signature gained yesterday at Rowner Children’s Centre in Gosport.

The extended consultation into reducing 81 centres to 53 closes on April 14.
