Under normal circumstances Little Fishes meets twice every month in the church, on the 2nd and 4th Fridays between 1.45pm and 3.00pm. All mums, dads, grandparents and carers with their little ones are very welcome. There is no charge, no booking and refreshments are provided. Come and join in this informal and friendly group. Pre-school children and babies have fun and make friends sharing in activities such as crafts, story-telling, playing and musical activities. The adults enjoy the company and chatting to each other over a cup of tea and cake.
Little Fishes families have also been able to help children elsewhere, here and abroad. We have helped to provide clothes and school equipment for an orphanage in Morocco, and for children in Malawi through the charity Mary’s Meals. We have raised money for EACH, the Norfolk Children’s Hospice. The group have also been able to decorate and provide babychanging facilities for the church toilet. We have used the money given to us by the Carnival Committee to provide extra heating and purchase new toys.
During the Covid-19 lock-down Little Fishes hasn’t been able to meet but have kept in touch and the team have been giving them weekly tasks which have been greatly enjoyed. These have included making cookies, making a wonderful paper fish, hiding toys around the house for your child to find & making home-made playdough and then creating an animal from it. And Kate’s window is now full of teddies!
Although church buildings will now be gradually re-opening for private prayer it will be some time before regular activities will resume. Meanwhile you can still join the Little Fishes family. If you would like more information please contact:
