Background: Our group started to get going formally following meetings of our 3-21 Saturday Club which we started as a trial in April 2012. Now firmly established, this club is a Saturday morning gathering for all members of the family what ever their age. So far most of the families attending the group have younger children, but everyone is very welcome. It's a very informal gathering with at bit of singing and signing, refreshments, kids play things and other families to chat to. Please get in touch if you would like to know more.

Like to join? We have an email contacts list through which we send out information about "What's on" and our monthly newsletters. Please get in touch if you want to be added.
