Youngsters up to the age of three come along with parents, grandparents and carers to enjoy crafts, cooking and toys.

Mum-of-three Sue Leese, 60, of High Street, Epworth, said the group has been going for about ten years and has grown in popularity.

She said: “The sessions are very well populated and are always a lot of fun.

“They can get really creative. We brought in a tray of snow when the bad weather was here to make little snowmen and we sometimes bake cakes, which the kids always enjoy.

“It is a great way for the youngsters to spend time with their parents, grandparents or carers and it helps them to develop their learning before starting school.”
