Organiser Lisa Maxwell said: “It’s a fantastic way for parents and children to meet each other and make new friends, especially if they have just moved into the area.”

Activities include singing, story-telling, painting, drawing and other arts and crafts – and it’s totally free. There’s even tea and coffee for adults.
