ILearn - every Wednesday - 9am - 12pm

Our new group for the ethnic minority community has been very successful so far.  We have done a number of different activities including:  sewing, basic English, internet safety, and even some light exercise!


The parents that attend the group have said that they find it entertaining, enjoyable and a warm atmosphere.  They look forward to coming every week and spending some time around new friends.


We have loads more planned for the future....
