For Mums, Dads or carers of children in the ‘toddling’ – 3 years age group

Need to get out of the house? Want to meet others for a coffee and a chat? Want more opportunities for your child to develop through play and mixing with other children? Then come along and join us.

Children are encouraged to join in activities such as cutting and sticking, painting, baking and play dough. We have a time for children to use ride-on toys as well as an opportunity to sing together. Parents/carers are encouraged to be involved and remain responsible for their child during activities but there are opportunities for ‘time-out’ coffee and chat away from the children.

There is a small charge for each session of £1.00 per family. The charge includes refreshments for both adult and children.


For those over 65, particularly living alone and in need of social contact

“Best meal of the week!” according to one member, is provided in a friendly and sociable atmosphere. If you would like to meet new friends (or spend time with old friends) and enjoy a good meal and a chat in a friendly, caring atmosphere, then come and join us every Wednesday.

We can arrange to pick you up and drop you back at home if transport is a worry.
