Watch out for the Summer Reading Challenge coming your way in July and August. This year it’s the Mythical Maze. It’s a great theme that challenges children aged four to eleven to find their way around a labyrinth introducing them to fantastical creatures from the world of legend and mythology!!

Don’t forget our weekly (term time only) Baby, Bounce & Rhyme sessions on a Monday afternoon – the more the merrier and our Friday morning pre-school story-time and craft.
