Belmont’s regular Saturday Drop-in sessions are going from strength to strength! We are delighted that so many families are joining us and taking the opportunity to spend quality time together, and to socialise over a cuppa.

Keep an eye on Class Dojo and the website for future dates, and the Eventbrite link to book your place.
