Baby & Toddler Tuesdays
Baby & Toddler Tuesdays at Greenmeadow Community Farm are coming back!
We are absolutely over the moon and know it's been a long time coming ... we have missed you all SO much!
As you might expect, things will run a little differently from before as sessions are being limited to 12 babies and their adults per session. You will need to pre-book your admission to the farm (even if you have a yearly pass) and then book on to sessions on arrival. You can buy tickets here.
The way it works is you pre-book and pay your farm admission using the link above or calling 01633 647662.
If you're feeling sassy, it's well worth investing in one of our yearly passes which covers admission to this ... it's just £32.50 per adult and £27 per child age 2+ (under 2s come free). You can also pay for it on direct debit which works out just pennies a week! The activity sessions are then included and bookable on a first come, first served basis (spaces limited).
We will be closely monitoring the success of this new format and ensuring that everything runs as smoothly and safely as possible. To begin there will be just two weeks in October (5th & 19th) and two in November (2nd & 16th). As usual it will not run in December or January and we will then look to resume from February. We are delighted to be welcoming activity providers old and new.
All the Mums that run the sessions are local and offer their brilliant sessions around the area, please check them out via the links.
Here is the line up for Tuesday 5th October. If you have any questions at all, please don't hesitate to get in touch...we appreciate many of you may not have visited with your baby before!
