Playgroup Tuesdays Old Cottage, Woodcroft

    Recommended Posts

    Just thinking of trying to ressurect the playgroup at the Old Cottage, Woodcroft that was started by Sarah and continued by Hayley and Liz.

     

    It was a great way to meet people, and you didn't have to have little ones to just come along for a coffee. If you are newly arrived, it is a great way to have questions answered and get out and about. The location is easy to get to and the facilities are great.

     

    I have enquired about available spots, it is difficult to get a spot that pleases everyone, however, I propose Tuesdays at 1pm. It is for 1½ hours. The cost would be $2.50 per session (per family) and there is a small membership cost that would have to be covered too.

     

    At this stage I am looking to see who would be interested in this/able to attend on a regular basis, before I confirm/decline with the lady on Friday.

     

    thanks

    Rachel

    Hi Michelle

     

    It will be at the same place every week, the playgroup building is called The Old Cottage and it is on the corner of Reynell and Bains Road (think that is right :err:) Reynella.

     

    I have said I will let the lady know for definate tommorow, so have to just work out whether it will be a viable thing. Hope so, it sure is a great resource, especially for new arrivals.

    Hi

     

    Sounds close. I know where bains road is and Reynell Road but not sure if I now where they cross. The Palantinga Road crosses the Reynell Road is that the one??

    If that right then it not far from us so should be able to make it.

    I probably would Rach, Lumps is still off kindy on a Tuesday until she goes to school in Jan, and with baby coming I may need the company for a bit of sanity.:err:

     

    I also have a friend who would most probably be interested. Let me know if its definietly going ahead and I will get her onboard.

    Thanks for the responses, I think we will give it a go, initially for one term, see how much attendance there is and go from there.

     

    Keep an eye on posts on monday, as hopefully we should be able to get the first one for this Tuesday.

    OK, sorry I didn't get organised in time and didn't like to ring the lady in charge of the playgroup on the weekend or public holiday, so no start tommorow I am afraid. I am unable to do next week, so propose start of Tuesday 11 May, how does that work for everyone?

    Just realised I put wrong road intersection, it is Junction of Reynell and Byards Road. Sorry guys.

     

    Hope you can still all make it.

     

    Starting 11 May at 1.00pm

    The lady who is in charge of co-ordinating the playgroups is going to meet me there then with keys and to run through everything. although hayles, you will already know it all and be able to help us get sorted.

    Fantastic news that you've revived the playgroup Rach! It was definitely a life saver for me when the kids were smaller! Good luck with everything and lets hope attendance is high!

    I'm not yet in Adelaide, currently in Auckland and planning to move in a couple of months. I think this is a great idea, I'm looking to live around that area and it would be wonderful to meet people and bring Lola (7 months) to meet you all. Will keep in touch.

    Hi Rachel,

     

    Now Zac is on the move I'm needing more things to entertain him, plus catching up with you and the others would be lovely.

    Hope to see you on the 11th.

    Don't forget guys, this starts this next week, Tuesday 11 May is our first meet, will be great to see some of you there.

     

    Also, remember you don't have to have a toddler to come along, if you just want a coffee and a chat you are more than welcome

    Tracey, good news you can make it, bad news it is because of redundancy!

     

    Hopefully we will have a good turnout and new arrivals turn up as they get here.

     

    See some of you tommorow!
