Calling Families in Colchester
Called “Candles”, the group meet twice a month at St, Annes Children Centre. The group has bene started by local families including members of the DSE21 and has quickly become a place where children, parents and carers come together regularly. The group also recently arranged a weekend event at a café close to Colchester which we helped to fund together with Upwards with Downs.
Details of Candles can be found on the attached flyer.
