BOUNCE AND RHYME: Sidmouth Library’s popular Bounce and Rhyme sessions, which stopped after the retirement of library assistant Jocelyn Edwards, have re-started at the Children’s Centre, Stowford Rise.
The Wednesday sessions, from 10am, started last week and are now 30 minutes long, instead of an hour, but children can stay at the centre for a further 30 minutes for other activities, said librarian Liz Runnalls.
Up to 20 can attend and, said Liz, a waiting list will be drawn up if more than that want to attend.
