A new community playgroup has attracted great support in its first week.
The group meets Mondays at St Joseph’s Primary School from 9.30am in the Delany pavilion and is open to all, from the earliest age to pre-school children.
School principal Peter Teggelove was thrilled to see 15 parents with their children at the hall yesterday.
‘‘This is a wonderful way for the Rochester community to socialise in a warm and friendly environment,’’ he said.
‘‘And the children are having a great time together.’’
The playgroup is open to all community members and if the popularity continues it may be extended to another day.
Parent Meagan Keating saw the advertisement for the playgroup on the school newsletter and took her three-year-old, Harvey, along.
‘‘These kids are having a ball today,’’ she said.
‘‘This is a great opportunity for mums to get together and have a coffee, the kids play with the toys and there is fantastic interaction here.’’
