BROADCLYST TODDLER GROUP
The toddler group is for all children between 0 and 4 and their 'grown up helpers'. We meet Friday mornings during term time between 10.00 and 11.30am at the Sports Pavilion, Holly Close.
We aim to deliver a good mix of free play time, themed sessions (i.e. seasonal craft, cooking, and even science!), encouraging social skill development by sitting down to a snack and rounding the session off with a good old sing-song of all the traditional, favourite nursery rhymes and a few more modern adaptations!
The cost is £2.00 per family, which includes all craft materials, cooking ingredients, snack and of course, a cup of tea for Mum!

Film night came into being when the Victory Hall committee were very keen for a film club to be set up in Broadclyst to use the big screen installed there. The Twinning Association decided to do this to raise funds for the 2 yearly visits from our French Twinning Group. (We usually have several events over the long weekend that they are here and also provide coaches to and from Plymouth.)
As the audiences at Film Nights vary between 25-80 people we are hoping to encourage a steady stream by introducing a new membership scheme, decided at the Twinning 2015 AGM.
The scheme will work as follows: Either people can continue to pay £4.50 on the night or buy a membership fom June 2015-May 2016 for £20. If you would like to join the Twinning Association (£5.00 pa) then the Film Club membership will be £15 only and you will have the added fun of joining in Twinning activities during the year. Additionally members may bring a friend to the film nights for a reduced price of £2.50. Bargain!! If you would like to become a member please email or phone 01404 822338, leave a message and we will get back to you.
We try to show films old and new and are always grateful for suggestions of what YOU would like to see.
Looking forward to seeing you there.
