Pipsqueaks – Morning

Pipsqueaks is a group for parents to get together with their younger-aged children for a sing-along session at a member’s home, or sometimes we organise meet-ups somewhere outside for some fresh air and a run-around. Newcomers always welcome.

It’s a very relaxed morning where the mums get to chat and drink coffee… we also sing a few nursery rhymes so that we can pretend we’ve really come for the kids rather than to socialise and get a caffeine hit! This is a really fun group that we are keen to keep going.

We’ve also created a new group on Tuesday afternoons called Coffee, Cake and Play so that our ‘graduates’ can still meet up. All ages are welcome and many older and younger siblings will be coming too. If the children want to we will also sing some nursery rhymes.

Please plan to arrive in time for a 9:45 a.m. start so parents with school-aged children are able to collect them from school.

Thank you very much!
