Come and spin some plates with us at Respect Festival this weekend! Open Sat 11th June 12noon – 7pm and Sunday 12th June 11am-6pm. We’ll have a soft toy tombola, plus toys and children’s books for sale. Loads to do for the whole family.

Can you help us run the car boot sale at Matford on Sunday 12th June? It is a fundraiser for the toy libraries – we get money for running it and also can have a stall.
Does mean an early start but it’s fun doing it and supports the toy libraries, raising much needed funds.
We need to be there from 5.45am-2pm, but can do this in shifts if necessary, so even if you can only help for part of the time that would be great.
For more details email: or call/talk to us during toy library sessions.
Many thanks!
