in the area, especially with little children, to come along and see
what fun we have at our playcentre. We are open on Tuesday from
10.30-1pm, Wednesday 9.15-12.15pm and Friday 9.15-12.15pm.
Happy birthdays go out to Amelia (1) and her big brother Ben (3) and
also to our five-year olds Rhiannon and Brook. Have a great time at
school. We will miss you both.
A big welcome to Ayano, Benjamin, Flynn and Jamie.

Horsefield who is helping out with the construction of the fencing and
also to the Playcentre parents who will be involved in the building of

finding interesting bugs in our garden, too. Feel free to stop by for
a cuppa and see what we are all about.
