Halstead: New leaders for popular toddler group
11:00am Tuesday 20th August 2013 in News
A popular toddler group which has been running for three decades will be able to continue after a new group took over its running.
The toddler group at the baptist church, in Hedingham Road, Halstead, has been run by members of the church congregation for more than 30 years.
But the Halstead and Sudbury NCT group, which already ran a group for new and expectant parents at the church, has taken over responsibility for keeping the meetings going.
Postnatal leader Caroline Smith said: “The time has come for the wonderful ladies who run it to take a back seat.
“Because they are getting older, they approached us because we were running a group already and they wanted to amalgamate them.”
The group runs every Monday from 10am to 12noon throughout the year.
There are typically between 15 and 20 families going along each week, but new parents are always welcomed.
Caroline said: “Coming to this group gives you a reason to get out of the house and socialise with people in your local area who can understand what you’re going through.
“We’re open to everybody and are always looking for new mums and dads to join.”
