Sadly, at the moment due to Covid-19 restrictions we're not able to bring you any of our usual groups.  Normally we'd provide fun activities for your little one, a friendly welcome and support for you, we are looking forward to welcoming local families back at some point in 2021.  In the meantime for updates please follow our Facebook page.

Reusable Nappy Trial Kit

Cloth nappies can provide an alternative to disposable nappies.  However with a wide range of cloth nappies available it can be daunting to know which style is best for your little ones.  One of our volunteers hosts a Surrey County Council washable nappy trial pack. If you’d like to take this great opportunity to try them out for free. Get in contact with the branch to find out more.
