Every Wednesday with two sessions, 10.15am and 11.15am. Children love being bounced and tickled, and rhymes are a great way of entertaining babies and toddlers. They help your child’s language development too. Baby Rhyme Times are a fun half hour session of songs and rhymes suitable for babies and toddlers of all ages. All parents, carers and their babies are welcome to join in and there is no need to book in advance. For the comfort and safety of you and your child, we reserve the right to limit numbers at popular sessions. This activity is free; however we do welcome a voluntary contribution of £1 per family. www.hertfordshire.gov.uk

Every Wednesday at 1.30pm, At Royston Heath. Royston Health Walks is a social walking group. We are very welcoming and friendly and pride ourselves in being positively inclusive and non-cliquey. We walk at a leisurely pace over Therfield Heath, have a chat and then go for refreshments in the café. Everyone regardless of age, level of fitness and in principle state of health can get something from walking with us. The walks are free and accompanied children and dogs are welcome. For more information contact: 01763 852769 or email@example.com
We have an enthusiastic group of trained volunteers who lead our two, weekly Walking for Health walks at Wandlebury. The first is slightly faster while the second is more leisurely, accommodating people who are not so fit or are newcomers to the group. Each walk lasts around 30 minutes and covers about 1.5 miles. With the slower second walk, we offer a shortcut back to the base if needed. This social group meets all year round at 10am every Thursday morning, with the slower walk starting at 10.30am. Walks are well-attended, with 50-60 people joining most weeks. Teas and coffees are available afterwards. www.cambridgeppf.org/whats-on
