Focal Events

Every Thursday in term time Rhyme Time is designed for children from birth to 4 years.  We sing and act out nursery rhymes so mums, dads, grandparents, carers and their children can play and learn together.  From 10:00 am to 11:00 am.  A voluntary contribution of £2 for an adult and child with £1 each for extra children is requested to cover overheads.
