Beecher playgroup caters for young families

IF YOU live in Beecher and do not want to drive all the way into town to join a playgroup, you are in luck.

Little Monkeys, a playgroup run by Cassandra McPhail, is held at the Beecher Faith Baptist Church.

The playgroup is open to parents, and children from age 0-5. The $3 cost per family helps run the playgroup.

Mrs McPhail has been running the playgroup for 10 years.

"I have been running it for so long that all of my kids but one have been in the playgroup at one time or another," she said.

"Now my grandchildren come to the playgroup."

The playgroup has an arts and craft table, singing and story time. A morning tea is provided for parents and children.

The playgroup runs on Tuesdays from 9-11am during school terms.
