Early Bird Breakfast
All young people aged 11+ can come to Early Bird Breakfast which is held about once a month. Bacon and sausage sandwiches, as well as toast and drinks, are provided by a team of parent-helpers, and a discussion session takes place. Dates for the Early Bird Breakfast can be found on our calendar. Parents who would like to help on the breakfast rota are asked to contact Alison Stretton via our Contact Page.
Friday Evening Social Time
Social Time for young people over the age of 11 takes place in the Parish Hall on most Fridays during term time. There are board and table games or just the chance to chat, with soft drinks and biscuits. Friday evening Social Time is coordinated by Ginny Wemoth and manned on a rota basis by parents. Parents who would like to participate on the rota are asked to contact Ginny via our Contact Page.
