Groups

THE LITTLE PILGRIMS
The Pilgrims meet each Friday in Term Time from 1.30 pm until 3 pm in the St. James Community Centre, on High Street (opposite the Church). 
They are open to all pre school children (under 5), no matter how young,to help carers meet with other carers, while the children enjoy playing, and learning to mix with other children. Meanwhile the carers enjoy a well earned rest and chat. The sessions finish with a sing, a prayer, and then a cup of tea (for the carers), juice and a snack for the children. 
The Little Pilgrims are an initiative of the Mothers Union (see below), organised & led by them.
Contact Mrs June Henderson on 01946 690845 for more information.
