Groups and sessions in Lightwater, Bagshot and Windlesham primarily please but if you know of one a little further away let us know.

(N.B this is a non-profit group, run by multi-tasking, juggling mums!) Lightwater Baby & Toddler Group – Supporting local young families
Lightwater Baby & Toddler Group (based in All Saint’s Community Hall) urgently needs volunteers to join their friendly team to support the continued success of the group which is run by local parents and carers for local families. The group has been of such value to the local community for the last 40 years but now needs new volunteers during 2018 to replace those parents whose children are moving onto pre-school and school. Could you help with any of the following?
- Setting up (from around 9.00 am) or packing away (11.00 am)
- Help during sessions with one or more of the following – welcoming newcomers, handing out snacks, helping with craft, baking or buying the occasional cake, re-stocking the kitchen, possibly singing a few nursery rhymes/reading a story (for those of you who may be have this hidden talent!)
- Termly planning meetings/party organisation which are held at a local venue
Being part of the team is a great way to meet new people and the group provides a fun place for babies and children to attend. Also being a part of the team does not require a huge commitment of time as the group runs during school terms only and even if volunteers are only able to commit to one term it would still be hugely appreciated.
If you would like to discuss this further please email the team: firstname.lastname@example.org or speak to a member of the current team on a Friday morning. THANK YOU

BUMPS AND BABIES
St John’s Church Windlesham – meeting upstairs in the Link building Tuesdays 1pm until 2.30pm
Come along with your bump or baby and meet other parents (or soon to be parents) over a cup of tea or coffee.
We know it can sometimes be hard to meet other parents at busy toddler groups (especially if your baby isn’t moving yet) so this group is aimed specifically at helping parents to connect on a smaller quieter environment.
Contact Kate for more info: firstname.lastname@example.org
Or join the FB group
If you are a local Baby and Toddler Group that requires voluntary support please let us know and we will put your request on our website and within the Centre. Please contact Caroline, Manda or Tamsin on 01276 473093
