Organisation Information

The Toy Library aims to create a friendly and relaxed environment where babies and children up to the age of 9 years, their parents and carers can enjoy having a chat and making friends whilst children explore our large range of toys and equipment suitable for indoor and outdoor play. Parents and carers can discover what their children like and can borrow toys to try out at home before investing further in play items and toys. Run entirely by volunteers. Join or just stay and play. There are hundreds of toys, large and small to borrow and take home. Meeting time: 10.00am – 12.00 noon. As we are not a playgroup or creche children must be accompanied by an adult at all times.
