Our clubs and groups are a thriving testimony that BOOKS CAN BE FUN!! We hold monthly book clubs for every age of child and activities that encourage confidence and the love of all things wordy!

We also have weekly LEGO club on Wednesdays after school, Saturday Morning Music Stars a weekly chance to try many different musical instruments with Seren, and Burns By Your Side Listening Dog, Zane & owner Liz visit Thursdays to give amazing confidence boosting sessions to any child wishing to book in!

Do you have a passion for creative writing that you want to take to the next level? A great way to grow your writing skills is to join our creative writing club, where you can share your work with others who are invested in cultivating the same craft, plus we just have a lot of fun! Once a month - when safe to do so!
We have many sessions during the school holidays - Halloween, Easter, Christmas and the Summer.
