    Thursday

    Friday

    Messy play @ Silkmore Children's Centre. £1.00 per child. Old pj's and a bath/towels provided - 1pm

    Jo Jingles - 10.30am at Wildwood Children's centre - £3.50 per child

    Playgroup at Castlechurch church hall, Newport Road, 9.15 Friday morning. £1

    Mums & babes, 09.30am to 11.30am at Weston Village Hall, Green Road, Weston

    Happy Plays at Church on Rowley Street and is now called . 9.30 - 11.00. £2 entry for one carer and child, £1 for additional children unless they are under 1, they're free. That price includes unlimited coffee and usually homemade cake - but always some form of food. It's slightly more than most places but that's cause they have a theme for every week, for example they frequently paint canvases for father's day/mothers day etc and that's all included in the £2. First entry is free (try before you buy!)

    Saturday

    Sunday

    Every day - Stafford Leisure Centre - Aqua Tots - 12noon to 12.45pm, 12.45pm to 1.30pm and 3pm to 4pm - £3.40 (45 mins) £4.50 (1 hour).

    Open sessions in the small pool with floats, arm bands & toys for babies & pre- school. A swim teacher is around the pool but doesn't provide specific instruction. The pool and changing rooms after are a bit chilly. Prams can be taken to the poolside of the large pool and towels on the side of the small pool. Limited changing rooms with baby trays and no toilet facilities in the changing rooms if you carry your child (unless you put them on a wet floor).

    Tip: stay til the very end of the 12.45pm session to avoid all the school children changing for lessons and leave just before 4pm to avoid the after school lessons

    Hi @Wormella, one update for you :)

    St Patrick's School Playgroup on a Friday doesn't exist anymore, for the past 18 months it has been held at Church on Rowley Street and is now called Happy Plays. The times have changed slightly too, it's now 9.30 - 11.00. £2 entry for one carer and child, £1 for additional children unless they are under 1, they're free. That price includes unlimited coffee and usually homemade cake - but always some form of food. It's slightly more than most places but that's cause they have a theme for every week, for example they frequently paint canvases for father's day/mothers day etc and that's all included in the £2. First entry is free (try before you buy!)
