If you ever find yourself very hungry, head on down to Banner's because the portions are huge! It's definitely very good value for money and the menu is so extensive, there's something for everyone.

The session starts with free play for the children and we come together at 10.45am for singing, birthday celebrations, fruit and juice. While the parents enjoy a hot drink the children sit down to do a simple craft activity, usually involving a lot of glue and glitter and sometimes some paint! We clear up together at 11.30am and then bring out the cars, trikes and scooters for a final charge around the spacious hall and to make sure everyone is really tired and ready for lunch by midday.
