We’ve had a great term enjoying our huge array of toys, books and puzzles – all gleaming after their Christmas clean – and lots of wonderful spring crafts including Valentines’ hats, Mother’s Day gifts, chicks, pancakes and very decorative rainbows with a pot of gold at the end (for St David’s Day – although this probably went over the head of most of the enthusiastic toddlers!).
Adults and toddlers have all been enjoying having a bop at the end of each session to some children’s classics and we were also lucky enough to welcome Dandelion Theatre Arts for a fun and upbeat session which got everyone moving! Our regular hairdresser has been back as well as Phoenix Trading and a new concession, Gloriously Girly Gifts with some lovely handpicked gifts for girls of all ages.
We ended what has seemed like a short term with a lovely Easter party where the craft team did triple duty with Easter cards and fluffy sheep to make and homemade rabbit shaped biscuits for the children to decorate. Our little Easter bunnies took turns nicely on the bouncy castle and dragged their grown ups on a very exciting Easter egg hunt around the hall! We also said goodbye to one of our longest serving members, Caroline Tang who has been coming to toddler group for almost a decade(!) with her four gorgeous children. Caroline really epitomises what our group is all about having been an integral part of the Committee including a stint as Treasurer she has been brave enough to lead the singalong, been a Team Leader and provided homemade playdoh for every season (even sparkly for Xmas parties). She will be sadly missed by all of us!
There is lots to look forward to in the Summer term including a police visit and our annual fire brigade visit. We will be hosting some new small local businesses and of course we are all looking forward to participating in this year’s Beatrix Potter themed village day!
