Little Hiccups is 8!

Little Hiccups is 8!





Our 3rd Birthday - 5 years ago!
Linsay shared an old photo of Little Hiccups 3rd Birthday recently and it struck me just how much we've grown. Back then our main service was Stay n Play based in a small community centre and our cake much smaller! We've certainly found a a demand in the last few years and our numbers have grown year on year. This year we had approximately 130 people helping us celebrate and an exciting birthday party to entertain everyone. 


We returned to the Royal Armouries and due to the increase in numbers have now been moved to the larger downstairs suite where there is a lot more space for the children to explore as well as being easier to access. The Armouries also had two tables out with Lego and colouring on to help entertain the children. Each of the tables were also beautifully decorated by balloons from our regular balloon lady, Celebration Balloons and we had a very interesting display at the entrance way as well to show the families were to come in. I did try to persuade one of our family's to take one of these home but was very politely refused for some reason!

Shabang! returned for their second time for a Hiccups birthday with Rag and Bones for some clamorous fun. A lot of pots, pans and noise was involved! The kids all joined in with much enthusiasm with the show and certainly contributed with the noise levels. A good time was had by all!

Reggie Rag and Betty Bones it turns out were also friends with Bert the chimney sweep and Mary Poppins and they had invited Mary Poppins down for a visit. After the show, the families all settled down for a meal at their tables and Mary Poppins visited the tables before inviting the children onto the dance floor for some games, chalk drawings and singing.


Happy Birthday Emily!
