During February half-term Buddies will be running a Park Buddies session on Tuesday 22nd February 10-12.
Tiger Trailers in Winsford held a Christmas jumper day on Friday 10th December that raised £250 for Buddies. This will be used to fund the new bowling club. Do you know of a local company that has a fund raising pot and who would fund raise for a local charity? We would really like to talk to them about what we do at Buddies. If you can help please speak to Stephanie on 07873423389.
On Saturday’s when the weather is bad, we will be inside playing games. Bingo is always a popular choice with the children so if you have any unwanted Christmas presents that we could use for prizes please hand them to a member of the team at the next park session.

Boxability for boxing sessions, Congleton tennis club for tennis sessions and the Oakhanger project for canoeing sessions in the summer. Many of the clubs will be after school, in the evening or in the holidays. As soon as we have developed an activity programme we will let you know.
