“The group was run on an entirely voluntary basis by the carers of the children in attendance. Now that most of those children are at nursery, and replacement members for the committee could not be found, the group has had to fold.

“All toys have found replacement homes with a variety of different children's groups and group monies being donated to different children's charities.

“A huge thank you to all who came along and made the group the wonderful place that it was.”
