Puddleducks are holding a fitness based fundraising event on Sunday, 14th January from 2pm to 4pm.

Fitness instructors will run 20 min taster sessions of their classes in the areas of Zumba, Fitsteps, Yoga etc.

We are also looking for possible stalls/ stands from health or fitness based businesses around the room. And also recommendations for healthy refreshments such as juicing.

We want to thank each and every one of you that came to our Christmas Fair in December and to everyone who played a part in helping out on the stalls or providing equipment and for all the tombola goodies and of course, we need to say a huge thank you to Jo Doughty and her team for organising the event along with all the staff and the roles they played.

A special thanks too to Father Christmas and our gorgeous Elves in the grotto!  It was a huge success and we even made the paper!
