YOUNGSTERS at Sidford Playgroup got the chance to blow bubbles and play musical instruments during a fun activity morning last week.

Carolynne Badcott, who runs Musical Steps, visited the children at Sidford Social Hall last Thursday to get the children active and develop their musical skills.

Bea Bennett, secretary of the playgroup, said: "Carolynne has just set up her business and we thought it would be a good idea for her to come along to our group.

"The children had a really enjoyable morning. Carolynne got kids moving around the room singing and marching. They had the chance to use different instruments and play them according to how fast she sang. It was just something a little bit different to what we usually do and we are hoping to do it on a regular basis."

The group will be holding an open morning on Friday, March 20 in the social hall from 10-11.30am for parents and their children.

A fundraising coffee morning will also be held at St John Hall in Sidmouth on Saturday, March 28 to raise money for new equipment at the playgroup.
