Parent and toddlers arts and crafts group.


A NEW youth group has been started in Weston for parents and toddlers to enjoy arts and crafts.

Our Way Our Say Engage have set up the group at the new Wasted Not Wanted (WOW) drop-in shop in Lonsdale Avenue on the Bournville estate.

Parents can bring their tots between 11.30am-1.30pm on Mondays for arts and crafts sessions.

Organiser Michelle Cleary said the group is important because it helps reach the wider community and not just teenagers.

She also appealed for more help to keep services running.

She said: “We are running seven groups a week at present for the people of South Ward and always looking for new avenues of funds.

“At present we can run the parent and tots for eight weeks with the funds we got from the town council.

“We want it to be a permanent session for South Ward parents and toddlers so anyone who wants to help fund this to continue just needs to get in touch with me.”

To contact the group, email ourwayoursayengage@googlemail.com
