New Group for St Catherine's.
St Catherine's together with Time 4 Two's are celebrating being awarded a National Lottery grant of over £9000 to set up a new parent and toddler group where, within a warm and friendly environment, children and parents together can make new friends while enjoying a range of activities that are fun and enjoyable while helping children to become school ready. We are hoping to hold our first session on Friday November 19th, said Eileen Jepson for the group, and to meet each week during school term times starting at 10.30 and finishing by 12.15. Children aged between 2 and 5 years are invited together with their parents/carer so please pass the word around and keep an eye on the time 4 Two's Facebook page. https://www.facebook.com/StElizabethsHorwich . Anyone who would like to help us make space for this new venture would be welcome to join us at St Catherine's on Monday October 4th or Friday November 5th between 9am and 3pm. Refreshments provided. Just turn up!
