Twiglets: outdoor group for kids and babies. We are a friendly volunteer-run group who meet every Monday morning 10.30-12.30 to enjoy being outside in the lovely Garden. Parents, grandparents and carers can have a cup of tea and a chat while little ones explore the garden - sandpit, seasonal fruits, willow structures..... We aim to provide a friendly, relaxed way for everyone to spend some time outside! We also have the cabin if it's too soggy to be outside. £3 for first child, additional children £1 (we're run by volunteers, admission goes to hire garden, tea and materials for occasional activities). Find us on Facebook (Group: Twiglets @ Barracks Lane) or contact Martha -
