We value all our playgroups and their amazing stories. This is why, each month, we want you to meet one of them, hopefully their stories will inspire you.
This month, the focus is on Arcadia Playgroup. The determination of this special group of people will surely inspire you.
Children love playing with balls of all shapes and sizes. And with good reason: balls are great for group play, organised sports or just playing by yourself. They are also suitable for a variety of age groups (from babies to children and even adults).
In celebration of our 45th birthday, we’ve produced a fun, short video which we hope you enjoy. Thanks to all the playgroups and others who contributed to it.
