Playgroup Easter Break…..Toddlers will be OPEN

Don’t forget – Toddlers will be open as usual on Thursday mornings 10:15 til 12 noon in the Village Hall throughout the holidays. Tea and cake anyone?

Kippen Street Fayre Fundraiser

Kippen Street Fayre (Saturday 14th June) constitutes the next big fundraising event in the Playgroup & Toddlers calendar (who can forget Iain McKinnon sporting the ever so manly pink princess hat last year?!).

In order for us to build on last year’s success we need to get an organising sub-committee group together – which is where you come in – drop a line ASAP to Michelle Hewines in the first instance if you’re able to help.

Next Committee Meeting Weds 26th February

The next Committee Meeting for Kippen Playgroup & Toddlers is tomorrow night (Weds 26th Feb) @ 8pm. These meetings are open so all are welcome – Michelle Hewines is hosting.

We look forward to seeing you there.

Welcome back!

Happy New Year to you all and we look forward to welcoming you back to Playgroup and Toddlers this week. The updated Duty Rotas will be available to view shortly by following the links on the left hand side.
