Community Groups Providing Activities For Children
There are several community groups offering activities for children. If you know of any other groups please let us know.
ABA Coffee Mornings
Babies and toddlers are welcome at all meetings of the Australian Breastfeeding Association. They can play with the other children whilst mum enjoys a cuppa and enjoys the company of other mums. Coffee mornings often have a theme and may have a guest speaker. Get out of the house, make friends, get the chance to finish your cuppa and gain information & support whilst the children play.
