Jack and Jill group offers families support

BELLSHILL’S Jack and Jill Support Group is urging local families with children who have special needs to join them.

The group meets every week with the aim of offering youngsters a safe place to have fun while parents can relax and get support from others with similar experiences.

As well as meeting every Thursday at Orbiston Neighbourhood Centre between 10am and noon, the group organises outings throughout the year.

The group is hoping to attract new members. Those interested can attend a meeting or call Ann Henderson on 07793 863541 or 07973 327958 for more information.

It is open to children from newborn and all parents, carers and siblings are welcome.

Transport can be arranged from some areas and the hall is wheelchair accessible.
