Church Groups

There is a small buy loyal active Mothers Union Group in the Parish that meets in the afternoons


This group meets alternate Thursdays in the Village Hall from 9.30am to 11.30am.
At each session families can enjoy;
* A different craft activity with a theme, where children can be creative and try out different materials to produce an individual masterpiece;
* playdough and all sorts of toys that encourage children's imaginative play and pysical and social development;
* storytime, when children can share a book while having a drink and a biscuit
For parents and carers it is a good opportunity to meet others with pre-school children or babies.

Young Families is a Mothers' Union project run by MU members and supporters. We welcome anyone with children under five. The fee is only £1 per family per session and includes refreshments and a draw. Why not come along and join in the fun. You can make friends and enjoy some valuable play.

The following groups make up the Four Communities Activities Group (4CAG). SADLY THESE GROUPS HAVE NOT YET BEEN ABLE TO RESTART SINCE CLOSING FOR THE PANDEMIC.  The purpose of 4CAG is to work together as four parishes (Claydon, Barham, Henley and Gt Blakenham) to develop new activities and support networks for residents, especially older people and those in need.
