HADDENHAM TODDLER GROUP NEEDS YOU

The group of volunteers and trustees who have run the Haddenham Toddler Group on Tuesdays for the last three years are all moving on as their children grow older and begin school. Efforts to find a confirmed group of new volunteers have not yet been successful and the group will as a result not be opening at the beginning of this term.

The playgroup is a busy, vibrant and well-loved part of the Haddenham community routine and has provided a lifeline for many parents of small children and those new to the area. Offering support, friendship and a regular place to go for anyone with children from age 0-5, the playgroup fulfils a particularly vital role now in the absence of the children's centre, and one we would be hugely sad to see disappear from village life.

The voluntary roles can be as small as offering to bring a craft activity every few weeks, bringing tea and milk, or counting the takings at the end of each week. The committee does entail a requirement for two people to take on the formal role of trustee, but this really comes down only to being at the group on a semi-regular basis. Funds are in place to cover the regular running for the long term, and the toys and hall are all still available.

The present committee can be contacted via the Facebook page 'Haddenham Toddler Group' or by email at haddenhamtoddlergroup@gmail.com and would welcome the opportunity to discuss this further.
