TWO FOSTERING and adoption drop-in sessions are being held in the borough this month to inform those interested in getting involved.

The first is at the Culver Centre, Daiglen Drive, South Ockendon, on Tuesday, February 25, from 5pm-8pm; the next is the following day from 12pm-3pm at Aveley Public Hall, Purfleet Road.

People are needed from all ethnic backgrounds to meet the different needs of local children. At present there is a shortage of black African foster carers.
