A TODDLER group has issued a plea for volunteers to help set-up its sessions.

The Gainford Babies and Toddlers group is seeking people to join a rota for setting up the group, which runs on Fridays, during term-time, from 9.30am to 11.30am, in the village hall.

Organiser Fiona Hilton, who is no longer able to carry out the task, said the group was doing well financially, thanks to grants from Gainford and Langton Parish Council and the Gainford Parish Charitable Trust, but needed help in setting out equipment before the playgroup started.

She said: “It does not take long and if someone was willing to take over, or people to take it in turns, it means this fantastic group can continue.

“We already have someone who kindly helps prepare the snacks and drinks and everyone attending puts the toys and equipment away before the session ends.

“It is just getting it started that needs sorting out."
