At last, we have some good weather, and the Saturday group has enjoyed being out with our scooters, bikes, etc. in the playground, which also supported by the sites like https://www.thermoplasticplaygroundmarkings.co.uk/games/hopscotch. Additionally, the playground features creative playground equipment, further enhancing the outdoor experience.

We have two new families so welcome to Jane, William and Emily Lanigan, Karen and Louisa  Chase and Gran.

Our teams did very well at the Rotary Swimathon and although all the money is not all in we reckon to have raised about £300, half of which goes the Life boats. So well done everyone.

Thank you to the Swan Inn who raised £83.60 with their Christmas cards, Teignmouth Townswomen’s Guild who gave us £20, Bush and Co. who raised £42 through their Christmas card collection and the South Dartmoor Rotary who sponsored us with £100 for our day at the leisure centre. Thanks to you all. Every penny we raise or are given is spent on the children and allows us to do interesting activities and support our families.

Why not get up a table of 8 and share your stake. Last year was really good fun.

You will see from our programme for the next few weeks that we have some interesting Saturday sessions. Last week the Beltane Border Morris came and taught us a dance. Some danced, some played music. We are hoping to practice and this will be our entry for the carnival and maybe we will have other dates to dance. So look out for the ‘Aims Border group’. We are also having two art sessions to create an entry for the Dawlish Hub Trail which will be on show throughout the summer months. So if anyone has an old stool, parasol,  please let us know. Our art should be from recycled materials.

We will also be joined by Amy Ford for a ‘Makaton Lesson . Makaton is a visual language. Some of our children already use it and we would all like to be more proficient.

You are invited to ‘Coffee & Danish’ on the 17th July at the Bungalow when we will be holding our AGM and having an Open Day. Maybe you will see our Morris Dancers then.
