Net­work of new friends

PLAY­GROUP, it’s such a sim­ple con­cept but Childers Lit­tle Vegemites co-or­di­na­tor Jan Kime cer­tainly puts some per­spec­tive on what it means to play in a group.

When I look back on my own play­group ex­pe­ri­ences, it cer­tainly did set me up with a strong net­work of friends that I, like Jan Kime’s own chil­dren, have re­mained con­nected with well be­yond those younger, Lit­tle Vegemite years.

And while my chance to cre­ate new play­group mem­o­ries is still a few years away, I cer­tainly hope the sup­port for play­groups, from those who can, continues to grow like it has dur­ing the past 18 years in Childers.

It’s great to see fam­i­lies mak­ing the ef­fort to break out of the cot­ton wool, play out­side and live a life­style that’s be­com­ing un­known.
