Strollers Group

If you are a new mum why not come along to our buggy group. The feedback from the group has been very good, as well as meeting other mums, by being out in the fresh air and getting fitter, mums share information. Your local health visitor is also on hand to deal with any questions or concerns you may have. The group meet every Monday 12.30 p.m. at the car park opposite the Greenbank centre. The walk takes about 40min. After the walk mums go back to the church hall where there is a very well run baby group.
