Sing and Sign classes are in the village hall on Mondays from 9.45am - 2pm (the time depends on the baby's age), with their long running and award-winning baby signing classes. Have you ever wondered what your baby wants to say?

Courses also come with online resources and @home classes to watch whenever you like too.  Details from Ceri Roberts - email ceriroberts@singandsign.co.uk or call 07931 122766.
