FORMER youngsters who have used the pre-school service for children with disabilities are invited to an anniversary party this month.
The Huntingdon Portage Service - named after the town Portage in Wisconsin, America, where the service began - is marking 25 years.
There will be a celebration party in the Oak Tree Centre in Huntingdon on Thursday, September 27.
The service, which helps about 60 families a year, is a team including health visitors, teachers, physiotherapists and speech therapists who over the years have helped hundreds of Huntingdonshire youngsters prepare for school.
