    Little Groovers sessions are a fantastic way for children and their carers to enjoy making music together through upbeat nursery rhymes, singing and playing quality percussion instruments. Group-based music activities are beneficial to a child's development in many ways. And unlike many similar pre-school music classes, Little Groovers is run by trained musicians who have experience of teaching young children. We are fully insured and hold current Disclosure certificates. Grown-ups are very much encouraged to get involved as much - or as little - as they like, although you might discover that you can’t stop yourself from joining in with the fun!

The Structural Problem

Here is a short soundless video clip showing problem that caused us to have to postpone our Reopening Celebration. This is the East facing (Bluebell) side, at the back in front of the bay window near the accessible loo.
The arch is very shallow and it’s started to give way. The cracks have been there a while but the issue has accelerated just recently.
It’s now safely propped and in new year a steel beam will be inserted over the arch to span the full width of it, plus some, to take the weight off it.

We are hoping that very shortly this crack will be repaired!
