Twins & Multiple Birth Group
Tuesday, 09 Oct 2012
If you are new parents to twins (or maybe more), or if you have multiples of children under the age of 5 there is no doubt that you will be going through a period of major change to your family lives. Adjusting to twins and triplets is likely to be quite demanding. Would sharing your experiences with other parents who understand help you? - and at the same time give your little ones the chance to play and socialise ...... then why not go along to the Twins Stay & Play Sessions. Initially, at the beginning of January this year Windhill Children's Centre Network helped towards setting up and funding these sessions which were held at the Havers Community Centre. The venue for the Twins Group has now changed and the weekly sessions held on a Tuesday morning from 9.30 am - 12.00 are now at the Parsonage Lane Community Centre. For further information please contact Paula Mothersole on 07999 159811.
