We open at 10 am and our discussion starts at 10.30, but we understand that little people don’t run on a schedule, so please come and leave when you need to. Bring along the kids, both big and small, our toddler area helps to entertain busy little people.

As we are volunteer based, any help to bring some light morning tea is much appreciated, but certainly not expected (no nuts please).
