Our team recently held a craft session at the local Toddler Group at Chorley Methodist Church.

The children created instruments and a lot of noise using old containers that were decorated beautifully with glue and ribbons, then partly filled with dried foods, sealed and then sued as shakers and mini drums. Thank you to Joanna, Lee and Emily for delivering another excellent session; everyone thoroughly enjoyed the day!
