WHO ARE WE?

This group was set up in October 2013 by members of the church.


It is our mission to reach the wider community of young families living in the vicinity of St Margaret’s Episcopal Church. We see ourselves as like a ‘family of friends‘ sharing life together and supporting one another through a listening ear and in practical ways.


The group is run by members of the church, supported by a committee which includes parent representation. St Margaret’s church oversees our remit, and we are funded by the church, external grants and donations from members.


We are organisational members of ‘Early Years Scotland’ with whom we have insurance cover for public liability.

All are welcome!


Joint Managers: Lynda Anderson & Alison Cuddeford

ONLINE PARENT SUPPORT

In March 2020 we initiated an online private support group, where we post videos of age-appropriate storytelling, Songtime and a craft activity of the week, as well as interesting articles and information about parenting issues and events.


Our group page is on Facebook and is run by the managers of the group and our playworker. You may join by sending us a request.


It is open to people with young families locally, as well as others who connect around the world! We are multi-national and non-political, of all faiths and none.
