Toddlers finished for the summer early in July. The team were given instructions to rest, the parents instructions to ‘Toddle to the Park’ with friends and Chris and Pattie to enjoy the peace and quiet that the summer break affords them!

The Harborne Carnival may have opened at 10:00, but for many of our volunteers the day began long before. Early morning, in a flurry of activity, we set up three large gazebos for our different ministry and activity strands.
