Our Priorities

Showing you 1 to 3 of 3 ideas of our priorities
Toddler Group
Allow Pennard Baby & Toddler Group to have the hall rent free.

Pennard Baby & Toddler Group is essential for the well-being of local people who care for pre-school children.

The group is a registered charity and has been running for decades.

Currently the numbers attending are very low, meaning that the group is in a difficult financial position. Some weeks the group doesn’t even cover the £15 hall rental.

To add to this much of the equipment is in desperate need of replacement.

This is a service for our community, and as such we feel that our community council should be investing in its future.

Coffee Group
How about a weekday morning coffee group in the community hall, 9am-10am Monday - Friday.

The community already has two wonderful community cafe sessions later in the day. To compliment this there is a need for parents and carers to have a space to communicate after the school drop off, as this is when everyone is together, and some are feeling lonely and vulnerable. Many Pennard parents / carers are raising children without the support of extended family, some facing other challenges too. The coffee group would tackle loneliness and social isolation and help parents / carers develop a support network.

The toddler group on a Tuesday morning provides a fabulous service for parents / carers of pre-school children. However once your children start school the social network and support can easily slip away - at a time when it is needed most. Also families that move into the area can find it difficult to find support, having missed the bonding in playgroup.
