Put this is your diaries now! Our Nearly New Sale is running on Saturday 4th March.
All are welcome to come along to pick up some bargains, and enjoy a cuppa and slice of cake. Or indeed sell those children’s items that have been piling up!
This is a big fundraiser for our club, which will allow us to continue our Monday playgroup and the other community activities we run. We’d love your support.
To book a table (£20), or find out more, email: email@example.com

See you there!
Our annual photo day will be Monday 28th November. We have a wonderful photographer coming in to take photos of your children. More details to come but put this day in your diaries so as not to miss out. The results are brilliant and some of the proceeds of the day go back into the club.
There will be a hairdresser at Club on Monday 25th April. Please use the sign-up sheet on Club days to make an appointment for one, both or all of your little ones. Haircuts will be £5 (unless particularly thick/unruly hair). And remember to note if it is a first haircut for any of your kids – they’ll get a certificate and you can get a lock of their hair to keep.
Snip, snip, snip
Twins Club will be back from the Easter break on Monday 11th April. We look forward to seeing you there.
It’s (nearly) the most wonderful time of the year…
We have a busy month ahead and we hope you can make it along to the events we have planned.
On Monday 1st December the portrait photographer will be at our playgroup. This is the opportunity to have portraits taken of your twins. These make excellent Christmas presents for family members. We also usually create a composite of each set of multiples which will also be available to purchase with the profits going back into the Club.
On Thursday 11th December we are having our Christmas Mums’ Night Out. All are welcome and we look forward to seeing you there. Details are yet to be finalised, but we are in the process of booking Luciano’s in Lee for drinks and nibbles.
And last, but certainly not least, on Monday 15th December we have our Twins Club Plus Christmas Party!
Tickets cost £5 per family and can be purchased with cash from Monday playgroup, or by bank transfer to
Greenwich & Lewisham Twins Club Plus
Please write XMAS[TWINSNAMES] as a reference and also email firstname.lastname@example.org stating that you have paid and again including your twins’ names.
Tickets paid for via bank transfer can be picked up at Monday playgroup or on the day. Tickets must be purchased by Friday 12th December. Tickets bought after this date will gain you entry to the party but do not guarantee a present from Father Christmas.
We have listened to feedback from mums and are looking to make our twins club as accessible as possible for everyone. To that end, the way we run our weekly playgroup is changing.
From Monday 13th October we will be running the group differently in order to allow the toddlers to do more age-appropriate activities, the parents of small babies to have the chance to chill out and chat in a calm and quiet environment and for all parents to still have the opportunity to talk to each other regardless of their children’s ages.
We will be running a TODDLER playgroup from 10-12. The format will be very similar as it has always been with free-play, snack and singing, but we will also be joined by a volunteer, Oscar, who will be providing a range of craft activities for the children to enjoy.
We will be running a BABY playgroup from 11-1. This area will still be “fenced off” from the toddlers as previously, but from 12-1 the toddlers will go home, meaning there will be a calmer and quieter environment for the babies and parents will not need to feel pressured to rush a baby’s feed in order to leave by 12.
These playgroups obviously overlap by 1 hour, allowing for parents of older children to offer support and friendship to those with newer babies.
The idea is to make the playgroup more accessible, not less, so of course flexibility is allowed – particularly for those with toddler twins and a baby or vice versa.
We really look forward to seeing you on Monday and really hope that you and your children enjoy the new arrangements.
This Monday (14th July) will be our last playgroup before the summer. There are plans to mark the occasion with a picnic lunch. Any ideas for themes or activities should be directed to our Facebook group for more discussion.
Hope to see you all there!
Monday 9th June is our next clothes swap. Come along and find some great hand-me-downs; each item is available for a 50p-£1 donation to the club.
If you have outgrown or unwanted items you would like to pass on, please bring them along the previous week (Monday 2nd June), so clothing can be sorted through and organised beforehand.
9th June will be a busy morning as we also have a crafts taster session from Punk Me Up Buttercup. Come along and join in the crafty, crazy fun!
There will be a hairdresser at the Twins Club Plus playgroup on Monday 17th March.
Haircuts will cost £8 per child. Please let us know if you are planning to get your children’s hair cut.
