Mother and Toddler Group
After many successful years of running the Toddler Group, Catherine Jackson has ‘moved on’ as her children are in school or nursery. The Group of babies and pre-school children and their mums or carers meets in the school on Tuesday mornings and are keen to welcome new members.
They now need a volunteer to set out the toys, supervise refreshments and activities. Could this be you? You do not need to have eligible children, just an interest in this age group. If you can help please contact Melsonby School 718318
