Toddlers on Tuesday and Friday this week

After having Toy Story Time last Friday, we are back to Toddlers twice this week on Tuesday and Friday. We’d love to see you there!

Toddlers and Toy Story Time combine once a month

On Friday 7 September we are beginning a new venture to join Toddlers and Toy Story Time together on the first Friday of each month. It’s not the first time we have done this over the years and now feels like the right time join up again.

So on Friday 7 September we have our Toy Story Time with a Picnic Lunch at St Andrew’s Church and in the Stable Rooms and garden at 10am where Sarah from Toddlers will be joining with Tim and the others from the TST team a time of singing, stories, marching and more in the church followed by play, craft and refreshments in the Stable Rooms and finally a picnic lunch for the children (and there’s always a bit for the adults too) at about 11.45am. Toy Story Time is a free event.

All other Friday Toddlers will be as before in the Saint Andrew’s Centre from 9.30am.
