The afternoon includes craft, tea drinking and Lego building. This is followed by prayer, story and songs.  We round off the afternoon with some food (a light meal).

 

Another pair of helping hands at Heart are always welcome. If you are able to help with the washing up, just once or twice a year even, we would love to hear from you.  An extra pair of hands would make a huge difference.  Please call Janet T. 744458 if you are able to help in this way.  Thank you.
