A parent and toddler group are celebrating their silver anniversary.

Almost 1,500 families have experienced Tea and Toddlers at the Central Methodist Church in Letchworth GC over the past 25 years.

To mark their 25th year Tea and Toddlers are inviting current and former attendees to an open house coffee morning from 10am-12.30pm on Saturday, April 26, at the church.

Tea and Toddlers was started by three friends from Central Methodist Church on the first day of the summer term in 1989 to offer a service to young families of the community.

Between 40 and 50 families take part in the group each Friday morning during term-time. There is a different craft activity each week for parents and children alike, before the morning is rounded off with a sing-song, birthdays and news-time.
