GroW offers welcoming and inclusive group activities for families with children under 5

Established in response to the closure of the local Children's Centre in 2017, GroW is a community group relying on grants and donations to support families with young children.  Our groups offer a warm welcome with messy play, craft activities, stories and singing, as well as the chance for parents and carers to relax and meet others.
