Sarham Carer and Toddler Group - Run by volunteers from the Grove Centre Church, Sarham is a place for parents and carers to bring their babies and toddlers to play and learn to socialise in a safe environment. (The children remain the responsibility of their carers). A small charge of £1 per family covers the cost of tea or coffee, and drinks and
biscuits for the children.
We have a wide variety of toys to play with and we always try to do some simple art/creative work which introduces the children to skills such as holding crayons/felt pens etc. Molly comes with her guitar to lead singing, which is fun. We have a wonderful garden to enjoy – weather permitting.
Louise, our Minister, regularly comes to visit and she leads simple Christmas, and Harvest celebrations.
We look forward to welcoming you to Sarham (Judith, Christine, Grace, Carole and Lis)
