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.
The party, for present and past youngsters, will include party games and food.
Linda Holsgrove, co-ordinator, a special needs teacher who has worked for the service for 23 years, said: "We would really like the people we have worked with over the years to get in touch and join us and make this a really special occasion."
