Space to play

Space2Play is a small local playgroup for babies and toddlers and their parents or carers.

We meet in the church hall at St Bede’s once a week on a Monday morning, from 9.30 to 11.30 am. For the most up to date details please double check our calendar of events. The session includes a time for fruit and toast for the children, and a welcome cuppa for the adults. After tidying up at the end, which everybody helps with, we always end with a singsong.

As the name suggests, the playgroup gives the children space to run around, as well as a good variety of toys to play with and explore. These range from baby’s rattles and stacking cups to jigsaws, dolls and of course lots of cars ! And it is a welcome opportunity for the adults to meet others, and get out of the house, as well as watching their children playing, and making new friends.

The playgroup is hosted by a couple of volunteers from the church, but all the adults share in keeping an eye on the children and organising the craft activities.
