Night out…….


Date for your diary…….

Friday 26th June 

I’m sat here, enjoying a nice glass of wine, thinking what a gorgeous evening it is to be eating outside a nice pub somewhere, enjoying a Pimms or too and then it hit me…..Lets have a social evening! 

Being a parent to multiples or more is hard work! We deserve to let our hair down and enjoy ourselves, so I would love to arrange an evening for us all, (if you’re interested), where we can do just that! 

bite to eat somewhere and a few drinks. 

Please drop me a message if you are interested and some dates that you are free and I shall start arranging or email 😊

Little Fingers at Friday Twins Club Playgroup this Friday 

Hi everyone,

Hope you have all had a wonderful Easter! 

Pleased to announce that I have managed to reschedule Little Fingers baby/toddler sensory class for this Friday. Angie will be the lady running the class and I am sure all your little ones will thoroughly enjoy it. 

I have also attached a copy of our calendar of events that has been arranged for Friday 3T’s. Some of you have been in contact regarding something similar for Tuesday’s Twinplus and I am currently liaising with the ladies that run the Tuesday playgroup to discuss this with them, as the set up is slightly different to the Friday playgroup. Will happily keep you posted regarding this. 

Also, wanted to invite you along to our committee meeting taking place next Wednesday 22nd April 
19:45-21:30. If you are interested in joining us for an evening of tea/coffee and cake (child free), then please let me know and I will send you Claire’s address. Any ideas you have, ways we can improve the club, events that we can hold, all will be welcomed.
