Hello from Toddlers

Hi to everyone from Toddlers. I was reminded the other day that the Toddler Group has now been serving Harbury village and surrounding areas for almost 40 years, so does anyone have any photographs from any era in the past or perhaps any anecdotes? I wonder how many ‘ex-Toddlers’ still live in the village all these years on? We would love to see hear from you with any photographs or memories. It would be fun to celebrate our long and successful history as we continue to be a thriving part of village life.

t7 A special event … Who needs good weather when you have our Hawaiian Beach Party to look forward to on 13th November!! Check out our summer shirts which the volunteers have ready to wear and enjoy the sand, the music and the puppet show…..don’t forget to dress for the part!

Our local amateur photographer named by his grandson as Tom Tom Photographic will be coming to Toddlers to take some individual photographs of the children which can be purchased as a memento for the family. Can’t wait to see the results, here is Florence a successor in the making!!!

Michelin‎ Star Salad Grown in Harbury … We are growing our own micro greens, how posh are we? We had new cups at Toddlers recently as the old ones were very jaded, bit scratched and past their best. We finally came up with an idea to recycle them – hurrah they made great planters for our salad and the lids helped with the carry home. The children enjoyed the activity especially the watering, we do hope the seeds make an appearance.


We love going through the Magic Door just who is waiting for us all on the other side? Why it’s John our friendly Librarian ready to read us a story. It is so good to encourage our youngsters to take an interest in books and to use our Local Library. It is delightful to watch babies and children meeting new friends particularly in a group situation, and encouraging them to share their toys. Toddlers is a great safe place to aid the development of children’s growing independence and understanding of themselves as a separate individual.


We are in need of good quality children’s toys and clothes which we sell to raise funds to provide disabled children’s services. If you have any that you would like to donate please give me a call, telephone number below and we can arrange collection or leave on the doorstep at 26, Vicarage Lane. We hope that you are able to help. A big thank you to whoever left the bag of goodies recently, it was much appreciated.

If you want to join us at the Toddler Group then Lynne, Selina, Chelly and Reg look forward to welcoming you come on round the kettle’s on. We are based at the Wight School, High Street, Harbury, CV33 9HW (brown gate to the side) and meet at 9.30am saying bye bye at 11.15.

Thinking of coming along or need more information please do ring Lynne on 01926 612748 or email lynnebarton@btinternet.com
