MP Oliver Heald officially opened Royston's new Extended Services Centre.
The centre, at Roysia Middle School, will provide support for families and young people in the form of different courses and programmes running throughout the year.
Cathy Curtis, Royston Extended Schools co-ordinator, said "It's great to have a facility that parents may access regardless of which school their children attend.
"We are currently running ESOL (English Spoken as Another Language) classes at the centre and at Meridian. Parenting workshops that give tips, ideas and support are also proving popular. We have a 'Living With Teenagers' course, starting after half term, so feel free to call our centre to find out more.

"The centre is a base, but our Parent Support Worker, Charlotte, is happy to meet parent/carers at any school in our consortium," she said.
Extended Schools provided a highly successful series of summer activities for children in the Royston, and will now be hoping to extend their repertoire of services.

Peter Fielden, head teacher of Roysia Middle School said the school was "proud" to host the centre.
He said: "In the past, most support for parents, carers and families has required a trip to Baldock, Letchworth, Hitchin or Stevenage. "Roysia is already a busy, bustling place in term times and the Extended Services Centre now means we are busy into the evening, at weekends and in the school holidays - a facility that can be used by the whole community," he said.
