Parent & Toddler Group
On Tuesday mornings, 10-11am during term time, Good Neighbours, together with the Church runs a parents and toddlers group. The group provides a haven of support and friendship for parents with very young children, many of whom have been referred by their Health Visitor.

Numbers are kept deliberately low (12-14 parents) so that they can benefit from the space and free time over a coffee whilst the volunteers look after the children. Creative activities, sing-a-long sessions and lots of lovely toys are there for the children. Parents have benefited recently from a six week positive living course, run by a life coach and funded in the main through a grant from the Burden Trust. A recent refresher training and feedback morning has indicated how useful the course had been and that many mothers had adopted strategies suggested to them earlier in the year.
