Going to the Park!

Date: 23rd May 2012

We are going to Alva Park on Friday at 10 am - 12 noon instead of our normal group meeting, to make the best of the weather. So bring a picnic, your buckets and spades, and possibly a change of clothes for your little ones (water play!) We'll have a canopy to shade you from the sun.

Facilities: The park has a large sand pit, water play, swings, slide, trampolines, and more. Toilet facilities close by.

To parents expecting twins and multiples

Date: 16th May 2012

We welcome people who are expecting twins and multiples. It is a great way to get to know what we do, and have a chat with others who have been there before you as well as others who are also expecting.

In addition we are quite frequently approached by the media asking for participation by our members (especially those expecting) in documentaries and other printed material.

So come and visit, bring your other kids, we'd love to see you.

What would YOU like to do?

Date: 7th May 2012

Dear members, we are seeking new ideas and activities for this year. So if you've any new ideas, activities, or locations you'd like our group to meet at let us know.

Need help?

Date: 7th May 2012

We are asking local registered childminders to advertise any "top up time" they have with us. That is, time they can take additional kids because a child or children have cancelled for the day or are on holiday.

Some of these childminders will be volunteering at the group occasionally, this way you and your kids may get to know them. If you would like to know more just ask at the group.

Also if you know of any childminder in your area who might be interested in participating in this scheme ask them to get in contact with us.

Deadline for Tesco Vouchers!

Date: 7th May 2012

The deadline for collecting vouchers is 20th May for Tesco for Schools & Clubs, so if you'd like to support us, let us have your Tesco vouchers as soon as you can.

AGM & Social event at Harviestoun Inn

We are having our Annual General Meeting on Tuesday 27th March at the Harviestoun Inn in Tillicoultry.
