New Welsh medium support for Ti a Fi playgroup

The babies and toddlers at Llangollen Ti a Fi playgroup have welcomed their new support officer, Llinos Davies, from Welsh language organisation Mudiad Meithrin.

Ms Davies has recently joined Mudiad Meithrin, previously enjoying a career as a manager within the library service covering Ruthin and Denbigh.

Playgroup volunteer Jen Sandford said: "Llinos has only just joined us but she's already a big hit with the children and parents who come here. 

"She brings her own craft activities and leads us in traditional Welsh nursery songs and storytime at the end. People are mainly English first language here, but we really want to try and pick up bits of Cymraeg that we can use at home with our little ones."

Llangollen Ti a Fi has also recently benefited from grants towards new toys funded by Cittaslow Llangollen and Mudiad Meithrin. 

New additions include a new play kitchen, a wooden indoor climbing triangle (by Gwynedd-based Triclimb) and ride-on, bouncy animals. The volunteers who run the group made a concerted effort to source toys made from wood and other natural materials where possible, ideally sourced locally.

This long-standing baby and toddler group meets once a week, during term-time, at Glanrafon Chapel's school room on Princess Street, Llangollen LL20 8RD. 

Children are welcome with their parents or carers, from ages 0 - 4 years. Each session runs from 9am - 11am and costs £1.50 per child for those over 6 months (additional children 50p). The first visit is free and includes a healthy snack and tea / coffee for the adults.
