Description

Tiddlywinks is a drop-in and café, open to any parents and carers with babies and pre-school children in the Stroud area. It runs every Tuesday (except some holidays) 10am - 2:30pm in St Laurence Church Hall, The Shambles.

The project aims to support families with babies and pre-school children in the Stroud area. Tiddlywinks is run by Stroud Christian Fellowship and is staffed by volunteers from churches and the local community.

Tiddlywinks aims to provide a safe environment where parents and carers can relax and chat while their children play. A large central playmat with a selection of toys is surrounded by cafe-style tables and chairs, with additional tables for books, puzzles and crafts around the room.
Nappy changing facilities are also available.

Each week at 11am there is a short 'Sing and Tell' session upstairs with singing, instruments and an animated Bible story. Each week there is a selection of home-made cakes, hot and cold drinks, snacks and light lunches - all available to purchase at affordable prices. Freshly made soup is a popular choice! High chairs, baby cups and bibs are all available to make feeding your baby easier.

Tiddlywinks is staffed by a friendly team of volunteers, always around to chat and offer friendship and support to everyone who visits us. There is no charge to attend Tiddlywinks and no obligation to purchase food or drinks.

  • Stroud District Kids Stuff will hold a sale at Tiddlywinks on the second Tuesday of each month
  • Baby Hub with health visiting team at Tiddlywinks on last Tuesday of each month
