All welcome to new playgroup
NEED a little 'me' time of a Wednesday morning?
A new playgroup could be just what's needed with Granite Belt Baptist Church set to begin its Little Seedlings Playgroup targeted at children from newborn to Prep.
After a hiatus, the group is coming back with new faces, a new name and new programs.
"We just wanted to freshen up and give a new lease of life to the group,” said organiser Kirsty Harvey, whose husband is the church pastor.
She will run the group alongside Ros Flood.
"We're trying something a little different, doing things a bit different. It'll be a semi-structured playgroup and just a new name, new look,” MrsHarvey said.
"It'll be each week with craft time, morning tea provided for children and carers and plenty more.
"We just wanted to get it back up and going again because it really sort of dwindled off.
"We want to make it an outreach to the community and let them know who we are. It's not going to be a push on faith.”
Ros used to run the previous incarnation for many years and is excited to be part of the new group.
"I was doing it when my daughter was little and she's nearly 21 now.”
They have recently put in a new playground with council-funded shade sails.
The playgroup starts Wednesday, April 24, at the corner of Railway and Hillcrest streets and will run weekly 9.30-11.30am.
The cost is $2 per child and $1 per extra child with food provided.
People are encouraged to register ahead of the start date by phoning 46811293 or 0411720379.
