Time to join the Toy Library

April 10, 2018 April 2018 No Comments

We hope everyone had a great Easter and the children didn’t get too crazy after the chocolate eggs!

It’s the start of the new Toy Library membership year again and we wanted to remind everyone so they get a full year of fabulous toy hire! With full family membership $75 and Grandparent membership $40, it’s a great way to keep a fresh supply of interest coming into the home.  With hire period of 2 weeks and the ability to take up to four toys every time. Last year we saw a huge rise in grandparent membership as its perfect to keep the little visitors entertained but not have to live with large amounts of toys all the time!

This year will be a big one for us with the move to the new Waihenga centre. Being more central and right next to the children’s library and play ground will be fun and mean there is a fun activity for Saturday morning on offer for local and visiting families.

We have had some great new arrivals at Toy library with Tony and Trixie our ride on ponycylces being a big hit. We hope to increase the stable of friends this year too! At the march fair we also bought a fantastic Tukituki groove box so the whole family can drum up some beats on this cool instrument.

Don’t forget we also have the bouncy castle available to hire for parties. Suitable for children up to five, we hire at a reduced rate of $50 for members and $75 for non-members (plus bond).

Pop in to the First Church Hall on Weld Street, we are open every Saturday 10am – 12pm

Thanks Charlotte and the team.
