Who runs the group?

The group is run entirely by the parents, grandparents and carers who bring their children along. Being a voluntary run group means that we are always looking for helpers. Any help, no matter how small, is always appreciated. We are run by a committee which is open to anyone and we are always looking for new members. As well as this, we have a weekly rota for helping set up and tidying away toys among other important jobs. Being involved gives you a tremendous opportunity to get to know other parents and many friendships have been forged in this way over the years.

Additional information

As stated before we are an inclusive group. If you are concerned about meeting the cost of the group please let us know as we can help with this.

Toys used at the group are available for hire with a donation of £10 which is excellent value for members. This would be great for birthday parties, christenings and other occasions!

Please note the hall does not provide any facilities for disposing of nappies therefore these must be taken with you at the end of each session.
