Little Stars Playgroup: Bumps, Babies and Toddlers
Our volunteers run a weekly playgroup on Mondays at 10-11.30am at St Nicholas Church Hall, Harlech Road, Crosby, L23. This is currently running all year round except bank holidays. This is open to all parents, grandparents and carers with children from birth to pre-school age. There is a small charge (£2.50, £1 siblings or under 6 months) but it includes a snack and craft activity for the children plus a hot drink for the adults. We encourage all attending to help out when possible and invite anyone interested to get involved with helping to run the group.
We have set a limit to maximum 25 children (of all ages) and no entry after 10.30 although sometimes we may be 'full' before then. We have a separate 'Baby Room' which does not have a limit on entry numbers. We guarantee entry to those who volunteer to help at the playgroup at least once a month.
Nearly New Sale
We hold one of the largest and most successful Nearly New Sales twice a year in October and March at Old Christ Church, Waterloo. There are 100 sellers with good quality nearly new childrens clothes, toys, books and all baby essentials; everything is organised into categories to help you find everything your growing family needs under one roof for a bargain price. For information on the latest sale or how to sell at future sales go to the NNS Facebook page. NCT Member get early access.
Registration for sellers for the 28th September 2019 sale is now open. You can register here. The sellers information pack from our previous sale can be found in the Related Documents on this page and the Nearly New Sale Info page which also has a labelling guide. More details can be found on our NNS Facebook page.
Check our Facebook events page for the latest events run by the branch. These currently include:
'Cinebabes'; Every other week at 10.30am on Fridays at the Crosby Plaza Cinema. These are movies aimed at parents but that you can take under 1 year old babies along to. The volume will be slightly quieter, the lights on a little bit and nobody will mind if your baby cries. It does not run during the school holidays due to the Plaza's other commitments.
Bumps & Babies with a Brew at Brew Coffee & Kitchen, Waterloo hosted by the owner and branch volunteer Laura alternate weeks on the Fridays when Cinebabes is not on. She will make parents welcome and can fill you in on local activities,
Jake's Sensory at the Netherton Activity Centre is booked twice a month on a Monday afternoon 1.30-3pm exclusively for our use. It is designed once for babies and once for toddlers. This is a pre-booked session which fully books quickly. It's £4 to cover our hire charge, less than the general entry price and with guaranteed friendly company. To book join of email list or check our facebook page.
We will be providing a Feeding and Changing tent at local community events.
We organise other special events throughout the year such a Christmas party with a visit from Santa and an Easter egg hunt. There are also opportunities to get together with parents without the children such as parents' social evenings. Details of these are posted on our Facebook events page as they are scheduled as well as being listed with the Hoop App.
For up to date details of available NCT Essential Antenatal Courses in North Liverpool go to the Courses for this branch page.
If none are showing for your due date they may already be fully booked; enquiries can advise about this if you would like to go on a waiting list.
A representative of the branch will try to arrange to visit whilst members are on the course to introduce themselves and tell you about the branch. Hopefully this will make parents-to-be more relaxed and excited about attending branch events for the first time.
Should you decide to attend an antenatal course run by one of our neighbouring branches please email NorthLiverpool@nct.org.uk to ensure you are included in our members email and newsletter lists.
If you are interested in getting involved with helping to run any of our branch activities, would like to attend our branch meetings or would like to join the branch team please email the branch on firstname.lastname@example.org
