Fabulous Footie Club!

Fabulous Footie Club!

For 2019 we’re delighted to announce a collaboration with Sky Blues in the Community, the official charity arm of Coventry City Football Club. They actively seek to contribute to local, regional, and national priorities, using the football club to positively impact on a range of agendas such as physical activity, health and well-being, community safety, community cohesion, employment and skills. And what joy, we’re establishing an all ability Football Team at the Sports Centre, St Nicholas Park, Warwick. Personnel from Sky Blues in the Community will be responsible for coaching the team and we’re getting our team of ‘volunteer’ coaches in place!. We are sure this will lead to other good things happening with the club.  #HappyFootball

Thank you so much for reading about our Toddler Group we love sharing our news!

Coffee Morning

On Saturday 23rd March we were responsible for running the Coffee Morning at All Saints Church in the Tom Hauley Room, 10 till 12 noon. We were blessed with lots of raffle prizes, 50 items in all, so it took some time to complete the draw! We also had a great array of cakes and bric a brac. It started out as a quiet affair but then we were joined by some of our Toddler families with their children and grandchildren who are always wonderfully lively and enjoy the space and the attention, so there was a real buzz about the place and we do love hosting it. We made a staggering £244.42p all for Toddler Group. It will be used to buy art and craft materials, refreshments and contribute towards our summer trip. It costs us over £1,600 per year to run the Group each Monday and as the subs have remained the same for years we do rely on fundraising and donations to keep going. Thank you so much to all those who came, contributed and supported us, it is really appreciated.

Community Involvement

We are delighted to welcome Judi Piper as our new additional Volunteer, I think many of you will know her from Biblios, we are very pleased to have her valuable experience, great to have a new team member.

Alison Hunt, another well know person in Harbury, came to read a story and sing songs with the children recently, it is fabulous to have such a diverse range of helpers and supporters, here she is captivating her audience. 

Here is a shout out, in the past Barbara has kindly collected large shells for us at least 10cm across, from Mark’s & Spencer’s I believe. We use them to plant mustard and cress which was so easy for little fingers, so if any one has any shells we would love to hear from you – we need about 20 for everyone to have a turn.

Other Activities   

We held our AGM in February during drink and biscuit time, this gives everyone time to have a say. We are pleased to report that we offered 38 sessions during 2018, 73 individual children came to the Group. We had some star attenders including Monty, George, Ila, Lucy and Olivia. Selina, our Treasurer and Lynne as the Chair agreed to retain these offices for a further year and this was unanimously applauded.  Thanks guys.

Our activity Calendar for 2019 is in full swing with thanks to Janice from Pu Tai Health & Wellbeing offering massage and other treatments to parents, Miss Laura from Love Ballet dancing the morning away which the children adore. Liz from The Cookery Kitchen will be joining us soon with lots of other visitors planned.

We’ve also made animal masks and sprinkled glitter on pine cones, decorated photo frames, made colourful printing, moulded our dough, made Valentine cards, Mother’s Day keys to your heart gifts, made clay pigs, bird feeders, played with trains, lego, cars, shops, and dinosaurs phew how busy are we!!!! 

Come and join us – If you want to join us at the Toddler Group then Lynne, Selina, Suzi, Judi and Reg look forward to welcoming you come on round the kettle’s on. We are based at the Scout Hut, High Street, Harbury, CV33 9HW and meet at 9.30am saying bye bye at 11.15.Thinking of coming along or need more information please do ring Lynne on 01926 612748 or email lynnebarton@btinternet.com

Toddler Blog Feb & March 2019

Hi Everyone,

We were graced by the presence of a princess recently, a real Disney Princess, that is Elsa came to visit us and decorated our hands with sparkly tattoos that didn’t wash off for over a week.  What fun!!

Chinese New Year Toddler Style
We never miss an opportunity to party and have fun so the Chinese festival  celebrating the beginning of the traditional Chinese Calendar was perfect for us. We loved the feel of the noodles, made lanterns to take home and bounced the morning away on our Bouncy Castle. Learning new things is such fun especially when your sharing it with friends. 

Happy Half Term
We decided we would open in half term to ‘test the take up’ and oh my goodness parents, grandparents and children supported the idea so a great success all round. Reg, Lynne and Simon just about managed thanks to a wonderful line up of support with our very own Emily on Clay Models, Clare on Singing, Dancing and Story, Deb on large Easel Art, kept going by free cakes at break time courtesy of Fiona. A real community affair.   Thanks to all!!

Plea for donations
On Saturday 23rd March we will be hosting the Coffee Morning at All Saints Church in the Tom Hauley Room, 10 till 12 noon. This is something we all love to do but rely on donations of homemade cakes and raffle prizes so please help if you can.  Why not join us and help raise much needed funds for Toddlers. We need to buy a toddler sized table which folds down so it can be stored in the shed, we would like some new toys and are always in need of art and craft, so all funds raised will be well spent and directly benefit the children.   Many many thanks.
