Nayland Playgroup Beach Trip 2011

This year our annual jaunt to Frinton will be on Thursday 21st July.

All playgroup children are welcome to come but must be accompanied by a parent or carer. To save costs, transport is by parents own cars.

The meeting place will be opposite the end of Pole Barn Lane on the Esplanade at about 10.30 am. Balloons will be attached to a staff car so that you have an idea of where we are should you arrive late. Maps are available from Woodland Corner.

Cross the railway crossing at Frinton then take the first turn left into Pole Barn Lane. Follow the road until you reach the junction at the beach. Parking is available opposite. We will tie some balloons to a staff car to help you spot us. There is a path which leads to the beach where you will find us. The path is quite steep but is suitable for pushchairs. Departure time is up to you but usually depends on the weather. If you need to be back for school finishing time you should allow at least an hour.

Please bring your own packed lunch, buckets and spades etc.

There will not be a regular playgroup session on the 21st July unless the trip is cancelled due to heavy rain when playgroup session will go ahead as normal. Lunch Club is also cancelled. If there is any doubt about the suitability of the weather a message will be left on the Woodland Corner answer machine (01206 263054) for you to ‘phone in and check.

Don’t forget the sun cream. The sun can burn even on dull days.
