We welcome all children from birth to school age and their parents/carers. We find that friendships are formed which extend beyond the session times. Each toddler session is structured i.e. free play/refreshments/song time/wheeled toys. Juice and healthy snacks for the children, tea and coffee and biscuits for the adults are available.

The group is busy on Monday and quieter on Wednesdays.

Parking fees apply locally. £1.10 + for three or more hours.
