The popular weekly baby and toddler classes at Greenmeadow Community Farm are going online to help keep children active during the coronavirus lockdown.
The activity providers usually run sessions every Tuesday but are now going to use the group’s Facebook page. The classes start at 10.30am. Some will be live and others pre-recorded.
Kate Holly, commercial manager at Greenmeadow Community Farm said, “Many of us know how
challenging it can be to provide fun and stimulation for our infants at the best of times and the
lockdown situation that we find ourselves in has increased this, putting more pressure on primary
carers as they are unable to visit family and friends. We all hope that these sessions will help to
brighten the day and lighten the load.”
