Every Monday morning babies and toddlers, along with a parent/carer, meet in the Church Lounge for a play and a chat.

We meet from 9.15am onwards and usually finish by 11.45am.

We are a very informal group, the children enjoy playing together whilst the adults chat, always keeping a close eye on their children!

We have tea/coffee/juice with biscuits during the morning and there is a cake when we celebrate one of the children's birthdays.

Parent, Carer and Toddler Day
Windmill Farm - 20th July

Each year at Parent, Carer and Toddler we end up going to Windmill Farm before we break up for the summer.

In addition to the 42 parents, toddlers and babies, a number of other family members came along to enjoy this very happy day. The weather was kind to us in the morning. When it did rain a little in the afternoon, there was plenty to do and see undercover.

We all went on the train, it is so exciting, and a real joy, to see the smiles on everyone's faces. The children helped to feed the lambs, watched two sheep being sheared, and saw all the other animals.

As there is so much to do, we quickly found ourselves opening our picnics at lunch time before quickly getting back to all the activities. Some didn't leave until 5pm, so they obviously didn't want to go home.

What a privilege to share the day enjoying God's beauty with these families.

Sponsored Big Toddle for Barnado's
8th June

We held our annual sponsored toddle which this year had a pirate theme. We prayed for good weather and was blessed with a sunny morning.

Jan, our Minister, joined us toddling around the Church field! Some toddled, some pushed prams and others just had fun. We had a few little ones in pirate costumes, they looked adorable.

Jan presented each baby and child with their medals after completing the mammoth task of walking around the perimeter of our field.

We raised £242 for Barnado's. Thank you all SO MUCH for those who helped or took part and to friends and family who supported these precious little ones by sponsoring them.

A GREAT day was enjoyed by all

Thanks again, Margaret Boston.

Babies have come along at just a few days old and the children stay with us until they move into Nursery or in some cases school. We enjoy watching the children grow whilst they are with us and we like to think that we can be of support to their parents whenever there is a need. We normally have over 20 children each week and have now had to start a waiting list!

We have an annual outing to Windmill Farm as our last meeting each July.
