Newsletter – September 2023
FANTASTIC NEWS! We have just received funding from the National Lottery to continue to run Tiny Hearts as a free drop-in session for under 5’s and their grown ups on Mondays, Wednesdays and Thursdays (9 till 11am) until the end of March 2024!
To celebrate our great news, we will be having a party for the grown-ups on Friday September 29th 7.30-10pm at The Good Heart. Please bring along your preferred drink (alcoholic or non -alcoholic) and there will be nibbles and a chance to mingle and chat with others from the group (minus their precious little distractors)
FUNDRAISER EVENT – Raising funds for an outdoor canopy for the café for buggies and outdoor seating.
We are very lucky to have another event at The Good Heart with renowned local musician, Vicki Burke, performing peace themed songs and stories. This will be a paid ticketed event on Sunday 24th September 4-6pm and bookable via our website www.thegoodheart.uk. Please note numbers will be limited to 30.
Thank you for supporting Tiny Hearts since our doors opened in January 2023. In that time, we have welcomed over 200 different parents and carers and we are still seeing new faces!
Though attendees have been fewer over the school summer holidays, we have only had one day (one of the few sunny ones!) when nobody came along. This has shown us that there is a need to open throughout the year with the exception being bank holidays.
We will continue to provide free drinks and biscuits and will be re- ordering cakes again from the delicious gluten free catering company, ‘The Great Cake Company’ We even have a card payment machine so you don’t need cash to buy a cake anymore!
We will be planning more fundraising to reach our ‘Canopy’ target and welcome any fundraising suggestions from our wonderful, creative and resourceful group of parents and carers. Incidentally, any written feedback is always appreciated as we need ongoing evidence of the need for a free drop-in service for under-fives.
THANK YOU TO OUR ORIGINAL FUNDERS! - Frome Town Rotary, Somerset Community Foundation, Frome Town Council, Frome Rotary and the Lion’s Club.
Vicki, Sophi, Jess, Susie, Alison, and everyone at The Good Heart xx
