I have now started visiting Norton St Philip and Rode First schools for assemblies and it has been wonderful to receive such a joyous welcome from the children and staff on both sites.
I can now offer from 21 April outdoors, Babes and Toddlers, as a pre-cursor to Tots and Toys restarting in St Philip and St James church in NSP. We cannot use the church at the moment as there is major, exciting work being undertaken to install new seating and heating. So, each Wednesday from 9.30 am -11.00 am I will host an outdoor meet and greet for parents and carers with babes and toddlers on the mead in NSP in the enclosed play park at the top end of the mead. Bring picnic rugs for your children to sit on, a seat for yourselves, refreshments and toys for your child. There’ll be stories, parachute games and outdoor singing!
We hope to resume Tots and Toys in church from Wednesday 19 May.
9.30am-11. 00 am.
If you would like to register for Tots and Toys so that we can easily contact you, please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org or leave me a phone message on 01373 812766. We welcome 0-5 year olds and their parents, grandparents and other carers. We are usually open every Wednesday morning throughout the year except for Christmas. In the school holidays we also offer ‘pop up’ family workshops at the same time for older siblings and/or other families with primary age children.
I have received funding to build a bug hotel in the churchyard of St Philip and St James church NSP. This will be part of the Eco Church and Wilder Churchyards initiative. I will be inviting families in the parish to come and help build the bug hotel.
If you have any of the following items, could you save them for the bug hotel: small branches, straw and hay, broken terracotta pots, bamboo canes, roof tiles, corrugated cardboard, dry sticks, loose bark, dry leaves and stones. We have been donated pallets from the Church Farm housing development in Rode.
