THE first session of a new parent and toddler group in Braunton has proved such a success that there is already a waiting list.
An open day at the launch of the Little Angels group in St Brannocks Rooms on Friday, for parents with children aged from birth to four-years-old, attracted more people than organisers could have dreamed of.
The not-for-profit group has been allowed to use the parish church hall for free and was set up by local mum of four Kerry Tyas and run by a committee of volunteers.
â€œI was anticipating 10 to 15 families would turn up but in the end we had 43 parents and 50 children!â€ she said.
â€œIt was really good â€“ I was not expecting that many and it just proved to me that there was a need in the village for such a group on a Friday.
â€œThere was such a good take up that there is already a waiting list, but anyone interested is welcome to contact me and I will put their name down.â€
The weekly sessions run from 9.45-11.15am during term time and give parents a chance to socialise and meet others while their children play. To put your name on the waiting list call Kerry Tyas on (01271) 813259.
