I know that I said I would not be sending another newsletter before Christmas, but this one is a special one.
There has been a lot being said at the moment about the new regulations for the safety of children and we got caught up in the hysteria surrounding it. I spent too much time reading the press and listening to heresay about the situation, went into a spin and decided that we would not be able to continue with the Kids Klubs.
At the beginning of the week Grant went on the hunt through the new regulations and discussed the matter with those that know and the conclusion is that we are ok - certainly for the next 8 to 10 months - to continue with the programme that we have been running. Ruth, Catherine and myself have all been CRB through work that we have previously carried out with children.
So, to this end we will be re-instating the Kids Klub for the new year and it will start on the first Saturday morning in February. Details of the school holiday workshops will be added shortly into the new year and we are able to continue offering Birthday Parties. How's that? All we need now is for enough kids to keep it going.
To celebrate this good news we are going to be holding a His'n'Hers Christmas Gift Making Day next Saturday, the 19th December, from 10am 'til 3pm. The idea will be that they will make a pressie for Mum (Nan, Aunt, Sister etc) or Dad (Granddad, Uncle, Brother etc). There will be one workshop in the morning 10 'til 12, then afternoon workshop 1'til 3. The cost will be £15 per session or £25 for the whole day (remember to bring a lunchbox). Click here for full details on the website.
So that is all for the time being and the next one really will not be until I send out the Christmas wishes just before the main event. Oh, except for one thing - take a look at this http://www.flutterbycraftsberkshire.blogspot.com/ - I know I am biased, but what a little poppet!! My favourite little angel this Christmas and what a wonderful job her Mummy did with her first Nativity outfit. Fantastic what a pillow case and a bit of tinsel can turn into!
See you all soon and remember to get the kids booked in for next weekend - have a break yourself.
With best wishes
Lynn and the Girls
