For some time now I’ve been promoting the brilliant parent and toddler walking and social group that takes place weekly at Chasewater – Chasewater Strollers, who continue to grow in number and recently made an appeal for toys and equipment to set up a playgroup.
Well, sadly last week I forgot to point out that the Strollers changed their meeting venue from the Innovation Centre at Chasewater to St. Anne’s Church in Chasetown, just in Church Street up from the Football Club. This new venue is great for the usual Chasewater walk, and has enabled them to set up a ‘Stay and play’ group for after walk socialising.
Esther Allen, the organiser, wrote to me last Thursday the following lovely email, with an additional headsup for any local musicians.
I’ll let Esther explain:
Thank you so much for the toys shout out. I am pleased to report a lovely couple came down last week with lots of toys out of their loft that their grandchildren didn’t use anymore.
You will have to pop down some time for a cuppa and a stroll if you are ever free on a Monday morning!
Also I don’t know if you will see this in time or if it is of interest but I also play in an amateur orchestra and wondered if you would be inclined to post a call for players on your blog? We were featured in the Express and Star last week!
Do you know anyone local to Walsall way who plays an orchestral instrument grade 5 standard and above? Walsall Symphony Orchestra are having an open rehearsal this Monday 13th October 2014 at Forest Arts Centre 7:45-9:30pm. The orchestra is particularly looking for string and brass players.
If you know anyone who you think might enjoy it please let them know as they are a lovely little orchestra and play some sell out concerts!
