Popalong

Popalong meets at Wesley Chapel, Chapel Lane (off the Common) from 9.30 to 11.30 every Friday morning in term-time. It is for anyone who has a baby or toddler age 0 to 3 years old in Crich area, whether you are a parent, grandparent or carer.

We have a small team of faithful volunteers to facilitate the morning. We serve hot drinks and biscuits for the adults from 10.00 a.m., and the toddlers have healthy snacks and a drink at 10.30 a.m. There is craft activity, lots of toys, toddler climbing frame and soft play, opportunity to play outside in the garden, and always finishing with song-time. Children play together and parents and grandparents find it a friendly group, so all find it a place to enjoy and to make supportive friendships.

Comments from parents who came to Popalong over the years have sent us lovely comments including -

“Where would we be without Popalong? Certainly many friends lighter. It plays such a valuable role in drawing new parents and children together in a friendly, caring and sociable environment, and comes at a time when we need it most!”

“Thank you for filling our Fridays with friendship, love and chocolate biscuits”.
