A warm welcome at Mini-Maniacs
I ENJOYED Barbara Fisher’s column about the children’s musical session at the Charville Children’s Centre (Gazette, Feb 4) and it really resonated with me.
I am usually the “one dad” at a Wednesday morning session of Mini Maniacs in Ruislip – a group I’ve been attending for over a year now. Set up and run by Hilda, the sessions are very varied, and involve all sorts of music from nursery rhymes to pop songs, toys, instruments, imaginative play, story telling, costumes. No two weeks are the same.
My two-year old loves it, and I do too. A great session each week, and an (ever increasing) group of us go for a coffee (and cake) afterwards in the café next to the Stable Block – a really good friendship group for parents and children alike, which would never have come about without MiniManiacs. If ever you are in Ruislip on a Wednesday morning between 10am and 11am, I am sure you would be very welcome to drop in and join us and find out what it is all about. Tea and biscuits at the end of the session is included too.
Do get in touch if you’d like to know more (or check out www. mini-maniacs.com).
