May Half Term Event – Report

Jessica with her chocolate sheep

Yesterday saw 26 group members all get together at John & Jackie’s for a Games, Pizza and Ice Cream party. Despite the weatherman’s threats, the weather was beautiful and sun screen was soon being dispensed to kids and adults alike. John started the games off with Irish Bingo where the last person standing without a number won. Next came American Bingo followed by several games of Grandmothers Steps! This enabled us to give out the last of our Easter eggs and a number of chocolate sheep as prizes!

Whilst all this was going on it gave the Mums a chance to have a chat and a catch up. It also gave us a chance to get to know another new family to the group and make Steph and Jessica welcome. Jackie then cooked 14 pizza’s all with different toppings (this went down a treat) and lasted absolutely no time. It was was rapidly followed by Magnum ice creams for everyone. The event was fully funded by and for the group and was another completely free event, Yay!

Once all were fed the kids turned to gaming on their tablets whilst the parents had just a little drop of wine   :-0    Everyone agreed it was great to see all the group getting on in such harmony and we are all looking forward to the next one.
