Summer Activities Prove to be a Great Hit!
We were delighted to re-open 5-11 Club and Youth Club when Government restrictions were eased. We have our Summer Playscheme operating again in early August with a week of activities followed by a trip to the Frank Chapman Centre. Set in 90 acres of ancient oak forest, this purpose-built centre is home to adventurous outdoor activities and environmental learning throughout the forest, and has a range of accommodation including dorms, glamping pods, camping and cottages.
Toddler Groups Getting Huge Support from Lyng Parents
We now have over 50 young members attending our Toddler Clubs enjoying activities such as messy play and a fun packed “beach day”. The Toddler Group enjoyed a trip to the West Midland Safari Park where they also completed the annual sponsored toddle/walk to raise funds for Barnardos – raising over £400!
Lyng Office Re-opens to Visitors
In line with Government restrictions we are now able to re-open our offices to personal visitors once again.
Please remember that our office is open to personal callers Monday to Friday 10am to 1pm but you can still phone us 10am -4pm.
