It’s less than four weeks until Christmas which means we have special hire rates on all our sessions until Dec 4th. We will be closing the sling library after the Sling Saturday session on Saturday 22nd, and re-opening on Thursday 3rd January.
We can’t run at The Play Station Ossett this week because of their bank holiday closure – we are contacting our hirers today – if you’d like to see us in Wakefield we will be there friday 1st Jun or back in Ossett Monday 11th June.
The lovely folks at Kirkstall children’s centre have asked us to visit Armley as well, so we are headed for the new venue once every four weeks for our free to attend Drop in session. The new venue will host us 10-12am on a Tuesday morning and repeat every four weeks.
Our first visit to Armley will be on Tuesday 29th May at the Little Owls venue on Chapel Lane, Armley.
Good news for those who attend the Kirkstall session too – their popular stay and play event will be running at the same time as our drop in session, so lots of great toys, little ones to play with and other families for a chat as well as carrying advice and hire.
Please remember that our Horsforth session has moved to Wednesday for this month only due to the bank holiday,
We should have no carriers back today but we apologise for any inconvenience this may cause – it is due to the closure of the centre.
If your carrier return is affected by this closure please contact us as soon as you can. These are the options we are offering for your carrier return, but you need to let us know the option you select.
A simple, standard four week renewal. This is the easiest option for most people and it’s best if you either wanted to hold on to the carrier for a bit longer OR you want to come in and swap the carrier for something else soon. We are happy to do swaps for you are any point during your hire so renewing then swapping when the weather improves is a good options for most people. To renew just let us know and we will process it online for you. It has the advantage of keeping the carrier return session at the same venue for you.
RETURN (next available date) –
For carriers due back at Stanley 2nd March, we can extend to our drop in session at Ossett on Monday 5th March when the weather warning has been lifted.
For carriers due back at Pudsey on 2nd March, we can extend to our drop in session at Farsley on Wednesday 7th March.
For carriers due back at Farsley on 3rd March, we can extend to our drop in session at Farsley on 7th March, or our substitute sling Saturday session now running sat 10th March. Please let us know which so we can plan our stock for the coming week.
OUT OF HOURS/POSTAL
We are happy to receive returns at the sling library house Farsley out of hours, or to accept postal returns to 55 Thornfield Avenue Farsley Leeds LS285HJ. Whilst we don’t mind at all you using these options we’d urge you not to make a special journey and to remain safe when heading out.
I hope you understand the reasons we have had to close this time. Stay warm and safe everyone!
We are sorry to lose the Sun Inn, Outwood as one of our drop in venues. As is often the case when our venues change, this has been a sudden switch, and outside of our control. We’d like to thank the Sun Inn for hosting us over the years.
We are running our new drop in session at The Stanley Ferry, Ferry Lane, Stanley WF3 4LT. We will be using the party area inside the Wacky Warehouse section of the pub. Entry is free for adults and children under 12 months. Older children can stay and play for £2.25 during term time. Refreshments are available to purchase.
We will be running at this new venue every fortnight on a Friday between 10am and noon. This begins on Friday 19th January and will repeat on Friday 2nd February, Friday 16th February, Friday 2nd March and on from there.
If your hire is due back at a session which has changed we will try our best to contact you individually. Do contact us on firstname.lastname@example.org with any questions about the changes to our sessions.
Due to the sudden and unexpected closure of the Tiny Toes venue, we are unable to run the drop in session in that location tomorrow 25th Otocber.
We have been able to change our venue to
Horsforth Childrens Centre
11 North Broadgate Lane
The run time is unaffected, running 10.30am-2pm. The gates will be open and we will place signs to guide you to the correct place.
We are as yet unable to confirm the location for the November drop in session in Horsforth, but we will keep you updated.
As always, should you wish to renew your carrier hire please get in touch by emailing email@example.com or call 01132100855. We can take payment online so you do not have to come in to see us to renew your hire.
Please remember everyone that there is NO Ossett session today or next week. If your carrier is due back today you have been contacted separately. Thank you for understanding!
THE OUTWOOD SESSION Has been cancelled this week (FRIDAY 7th JULY) due to sickness – please join me in hoping our lovely volunteers and their babies are better soon.
We know it’s hard to cancel a session but sometimes it can’t be avoided – if your carrier is due back tomorrow and you hired it from Outwood, please get in touch and we will give you a new return date.
I’ll also be sending texts to everyone with a hire due back but please share this post with anyone it might affect.
We are pleased to bring you a new drop in venue at Chapel Allerton children’s centre. This session is free to attend and will repeat every four weeks.
Our trained supporters will be available for help and advice with all types of slings and carriers, and you are welcome to bring your own for fitting. A selection of carriers from the sling library will be available for hire on the day. Hire fees apply if you would like to take one home.
This session will replace the Moortown venue, Moortown Junktion, due to its closure.
Every four weeks on a Monday 10.30-2.
