Our first taster session of 2016

This week we welcomed our first TAP taster session of 2016. Naomi from the Garland Dance Academy  provided a music and dance session that included props for the little ones to join in with. The class was a hit and our enthusiastic bunch enjoyed the chance to show off their moves.

Naomi is kindly offering members of ESTC a 20% discount on classes (which normally cost £5.50 per class per child and are bookable in six-week blocks.)

To find out more details on session times and locations check out the website.

Thanks so much to Naomi for a great morning.


MAD Academy update and thank you!

Phoenix Cards at TAP

We are delighted to be welcoming the lovely Angela back to TAP with her fabulous Phoenix Cards on Wednesday 18th November!

There will be the usual beautiful selection of cards, wrapping paper and gifts as well as the Christmas collection. As the Christmas collection was so popular and sold out in record time last year, Angela will be dropping in catalogues well before the 18th November so you can pre-order with her whenever you’re ready.

NEW Nearly New Selling Page for Members!

Hi all,

If you’re a member of the East Surrey Twins Club you will have received an email today or a Facebook invite online for you to join our new group ESTC Members Selling Page. Yes, you’ve guessed it, it’s a Facebook group for selling nearly new clothes, toys, equipment, books etc!

There are lots of selling pages out there, so why create this selling page? It’s great to be able to buy things in multiples and also sell them in the same way. I’m sure we’ve all got hoards of ‘stuff’ that would be perfect to pass on to another twin or triplet family. It’s also great to continue to support our members including new families coming to the club. We are also aware that the popularity for selling your stuff online is huge and we want to keep up with today’s demands!

We will also be having a rolling table sale at TAP for anyone who wants to part with clothes, toys etc to other members at the play group as they go, I’m sure this will become especially popular around Christmas time. If you’d like to bring some bits in then please let Sally know – Feel free to mention on the Facebook page that you’re doing a table top sale too so we know to pop down!

The Facebook page is brand new but let’s all have a dig about and get this great resource going!

If you have any suggestions or queries then get in touch with Amanda –
