The next bookclub meeting will be held at Bridgetown School on next Sunday, 13th March, from 3 o’clock until 4 o’clock.

The next meeting of the Childrens’ Book Club was due to be on this coming Sunday, 13th February. However, as lots of members are going to be away on holiday for the half term we have decided to reschedule our next meeting for mid March.
The revised date is expected to be Sunday, March 13th, but this is to be confirmed with the school. We are hoping to make puppets and have our own little puppet show! Continue reading Childrens’ Book Club
On our last meeting on 16th January we decided to explore Jack Frost, following all the cold weather we enjoyed over the Christmas holidays! We shared a lovely story about a boy that meets Jack Frost and then we had a snowball fight, rolled big balls (pretending we were rolling snowmen), and even used strips of crepe paper to dance like Jack Frost did in our story. We swirled high and low, twirling and turning making wonderful patterns. Continue reading Update on Childrens’ Club

The Children’s Bookclub met for the first time this academic year on Sunday. Thanks to Bridgetown Primary School for the use of the school for our Meeting.
We had 12 children between the ages of 2 and 8. We started with some fun warm up games; the youngest members played a circle swapping game about the different colours of Autumn leaves. The older members played a miming game, with lots of giggles! Continue reading Children’s Bookclub

There is a slight possibility that we could get a mobile library stop on Trinity Mead. However, to request it we have to guarantee that there would be at least 5 people that would benefit from it.
So, if you know of someone, perhaps an elderly person, or a mum with young children and no transport, who might benefit from this service, please leave a comment below or email me through the ‘contact us’ page. Continue reading Mobile Library

Lorraine reports that they had a lovely first meeting on Sunday afternoon – although it was very hot!
The younger members of the group went on a bear hunt to find a bear each. Then it was into a cave to find a big scarey bear waiting for them! Then they painted pictures of themselves going on a bear hunt. They seemed to have a lovely time.
The older ones loved playing pictionary as a warm up game, then they chatted about themes for books etc. The first theme is ghosts and mystery. The children have decided to choose their own book based on a theme. At the next meeting they will do an activity on the theme, chat about the books and maybe swap for next time.
Lorraine says everyone had a great time – so if anyone else would like to join in please contact Lorraine on email@example.com.
Thanks to Lorraine for organizing all this and to Jo and Lizzie for being briliant helpers and organisers too.
I am delighted to announce that the Children’s Bookclub starts this Sunday, 23rd May. It will take place at Bridgetown Primary School from 3 – 4 PM.
Lorraine and her helpers have put a huge amount of effort into organising this, not to mention taking on the bureaucratic beast who always rears his head with Health & Safety issues!
It is open to any age so if you would like your children to join the Book Club, please contact Lorraine on firstname.lastname@example.org.
Some activities that are planned include painting, making, roleplay, printing, reading, writing, designing, dressing up, cooking……. And many more!!!!
This is all set to be a great Club – we may have to think of a new name for it that encompasses all the activities on offer!
If you think your children would enjoy this then please drop Lorraine an email – and don’t forget to tell your neighbours all about it – they may not yet know about the Residents’ Association and this website.
We’re ready to get started. Introductory evening for the Book Club will be held on Wednesday, 19 May at 7.30pm at my house.
Address: 2 Congreve Way (please note this is the path not the road bit of Congreve Way). Can also be accessed from Barrie Close – it is the last house at the end of the Close, on the left.
Please let me know if you want to attend as my house will only accommodate so many people. If there are lots who want to come, we will split it into two separate evenings.
So please contact me ASAP to let me know if you would like to come. Please email through the ‘contact us’ tab at the top and leave me your contact details so I can get back to you.
Please bring: ideas of books you might like to read, an open mind and plenty of enthusiasm!
