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