A parent and toddler ‘One Stop Shop’ is taking place in Malpas High Street Church on Wednesday, April 23.

It is the second time that the new collaborative venture has been held involving Cheshire West and Chester Council and Cheeky Monkeys Playgroup.

Parents can get support from other parents as well as a dedicated early support worker between 9.30am and 11am.

The venture takes place usually once a month when the church becomes a hub for parents or expectant parents.

Other dates for the one stop shop are June 18 and July 16.

Malpas Councillor Ann Wright said: “It’s excellent that these drop ins are now being run in Malpas.

“It allows parents to locally seek the help and support they need, both for themselves and their children too.

“The first One Stop Shop was well received and I would urge parents and expectant parents to come along.”

The Cheeky Monkeys Playgroup takes place in term time every Wednesday between 9.30am and 11am. Call and visit the group to find out more.
