Over 80 mums and children to mind and organise.
My thoughts of having a chat with the mums were soon dismissed when faced with a wall of noise - laughter, crying babies and chatting adults. I reduced my pitch to 15 - 30 seconds for each group of adults and remained in the reception area to answer questions.
Most people took a few moments to chat as they flew passed attending to the needs of their children. A repeat concern was the lack of information about the election and understanding of the role.
The volunteers are a very busy group of ladies who have committed many years to running the group. They provide a very valuable resource for the community and make a lovely cup of tea as well.
