For almost a year now in partnership with Felix Road Adventure Playground, Up Our Street has been running coffee mornings for parents and preschool children. The warm February sunshine lured families out and what better place to be on a Tuesday morning than Felix Road! On the last Tuesday of February we ran our 33rd session and it was our busiest yet, with 27 children and 17 adults.
We have been gathering some feedback from parents and it was lovely to hear that they not only enjoy the group but also feel that their children have grown in confidence while playing with others and finding their own adventures at the playground. One of the parents wrote that the coffee mornings "give my child a chance to experience stimulating outdoors play in a friendly environment, try new skills and to play with and make new friends with other children".
Coffee morning are also an opportunity to hear what's going on in our neighbourhood. So come along 9.30am to 11am on Tuesday mornings to get involved - free tea and coffee for parents and snacks for the children. Contact Pat on 0117 954 2834 or firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
