Peasedown’s new ‘Little Ones’

A brand new pre-school initiative is starting in Peasedown St John to provide more for parents to do with their young children during the week. St John’s Church, who have been running children’s activities, clubs and initiatives for over 10 years in the local community have launched ‘SJs Little Ones’.

The four-days a week programme is an expansion of the already popular SJs Toy Library, which has proven to be a big hit with parents and children since its launch in 2014.

Vicar at St John’s Church is Revd Matthew Street, who said:

“With our ever-growing desire to serve the community in which we live and worship, we’re launching this brand new pre-school group for parents to bring their children. There will be plenty of opportunities to play, ride on new toys, take part in crafts and listen to story-telling.

 Wherever you live in Peasedown St John, and beyond, we have something for you!”

SJs Little Ones will run on Mondays, Tuesdays, Thursdays and Fridays at St John’s Church, Church Road, from 10am – 11.30am on each day. £1 is the suggested donation towards each session, with coffee and cake available.

During each play session, the SJs Toy Library will also be open for toy-hire. Thanks to a recent grant of £500 from the Peasedown Party in the Park Grant Fund, a huge selection of new toys have been purchased. Party in the Park Chairman Nathan Hartley said:

“Party in the Park’s grant to the SJs Toy Library is part of over £2,500 we’ve given away to community projects this year. Much of which has gone to support initiatives that work with children and young people.

 We’re extremely pleased that £500 from the 2017 Grant Fund has purchased new toys for children in our village to use.”
