September in Walthamstow is all about the E17 Art Trail. Do you love art, but worry about towing around reluctant children, or live in fear of them breaking priceless ceramics? Well, what you need is the WTLPC Art Trail creche!

On 3 and 4 September – the first weekend of the Art Trail – we'll  be running a crèche for children between 18 months and 6 years. Led by our experienced staff and volunteers, activities will include free play (indoors and out), art and craft activities, story telling, singing and a healthy snack time. And you don't even have to be a member!
There will be two time slots each day, 10.00 – 1.00pm or 2.00 – 5.00pm

Each session costs £12, and booking and payment in advance is essential.  You can pay by cheque (made payable to Walthamstow Toy Library) or cash.  To book please come into the toy library or contact the manager on The last day for booking will be Thursday 1 September.
