THERE are two new names in charge of children’s and young people’s services.

Clr Jean Carter (LAB - Great Sankey South) has been appointed the new executive board member for the department.

The move comes after Clr Colin Froggatt stepped down from the role in March over what the Warrington Guardian understands was concerns a university technical college was being favoured over other schools in the borough.

And at the annual council meeting on Monday evening councillors also approved the appointment of Stephen Reddy to the post of executive director for the department after former director Kath O’Dwyer left to work at Ofsted.
