With the additional funding we will be able to make the play space extra special with some sensory equipment for children to enjoy during their visit - together we can create a magical space!!

Ellis and Wren wants a new home that will be a community hub for young families.

We have found a new premises, but we need start-up money to secure the lease as our current funds will be used to refurbish and fit out the space.

Our new home will offer refreshments that can be enjoyed in a colourful and welcoming space, which will include a free play area for young children and free book swap.

To the rear of the property will be a room for classes including baby/toddler classes and skills classes for parents to enjoy and indulge in within a child-friendly environment. We will host various arts and crafts activities ourselves from the room too. This room will be available to hire for birthday parties and for free to local charity groups.

Our new home will also feature an outdoor space that we hope will come into its own during the Summer months with  family-friendly parties and events: we also hope to start a 'Little Growers' gardening club for young children.

We will obviously be retaining a retail space within our new home too, continuing to stock our ethically produced, quality, bright children's clothes including brands such as Frugi, Maxomorra and Duns Sweden as well as some gifts and toys too.

Our new home will still house the fantastic sling library Wrap You in Rainbows, so you can come and hire a sling or book a consultation during the hub's normal opening hours; we're proud to make slings widely available to share their many benefits for parents, children and the wider family.

We will continue to offer our extended rear-facing car seat range to help keep your children 5 times safer when travelling by car. You will be able to arrange free fitting and consultation, so we can find the right seat for you, your child and your car.

Help us to make our dream a reality!
