Lower Valley Dads Event at Rastrick Fire Station

Lower Valley Dads Event on Saturday 26th November at Rastrick Fire Station

Dads came along with their children to enjoy a morning of arts and crafts activities.  Breakfast was provided and an opportunity to look around the Fire Station.

Dads were also given safety talk by the Firemen around what to do in the event of a fire and information which they found useful.  Each family left with a goody bag.

Here are some of the comments from the dads who attended:

Useful and fun with food!

A good opportunity for my son to see the fire service. Good information.

What to Expect When Your New Baby Arrives!

Being pregnant (especially for the first time) can be extremely exciting and a very happy time as you prepare for your new arrival. However, it can also feel daunting at times and a little overwhelming as you realise the idea of bringing your child home for the first time.

Surestart and the Lower Valley Health Visitors team want to help you feel confident and reassured about those first few days and weeks after your baby has arrived. These one off sessions help with that. Please see our What’s On guide for details or contact the Children’s Centres for further information.

So if you are 30 weeks + then come along to our antenatal workshop and meet your new Health Visitor.  Click here to view – What To Expect When Your New Baby Arrives
