Our sling library runs on the first and third Wednesday each month from 12:30-1:30pm. Held at the NEW venue Ash Valley Childrens Centre at Tower School, Tower Road, Ware SG12 7LP (please note there is NO parking on the school site, parking is available on the road outside)
We have a variety of slings available to try and/or hire and a group of Baby Wearing Peer Trained and experienced baby wearing volunteers available to chat to. Hire fees are £7.50 per fortnight (to be returned at the next meet), we do need to take a deposit for the slings (usually £50) so you may want to bring a cheque book or cash for this. Unfortunately we are unable to take card payments.
Please note this is a first come first served, sit and wait service and can sometimes be busy. You are welcome to arrive any time from 12.30 till 1.15 for information and to hire. Please ensure you arrive in good time to try/hire and complete any hire paperwork before the end of the session.
For those returning slings we invite you to attend the session early at 12.15 (so that we are able to offer the returned slings out to other families for hire later on at the session) When returning slings please note that it may also take a little time to be seen in turn and we will also need to complete checks on the returned slings.
This service is run by volunteers who may have their babies or small children present. There are a small number of toys to keep the little ones amused and siblings are welcome. We look forward to welcoming you.
