Joint - have copied WORCESTERSHIRE County Council's Family Information Service has launched a brand new Facebook page so county families can keep up to date with local news, information, events and more right at their fingertips.

Family information officers will be posting regular items on the page, which can be found at, so families are aware of things happening across the county that may be of interest to them. Items that will be posted include school admissions information, family activities, reminders for free nursery education places, baby and toddler activities and more.

Sian Burford, family information officer, said: "We are hoping lots of families across Worcestershire will 'Like' our new Facebook page so they can follow information that may be very useful to them.

“Being a parent or carer is a full time job in itself so having useful reminders about news that is local to you could be very helpful."

Worcestershire Family Information Service provides free and impartial information and advice to families with children aged from 0 to 19. For more information about the new Facebook page or to contact the service on 01905 822666, e-mail or see
