The Red Hen Project runs :


FOUR DROP-INS, run weekly in term-time that give families a safe place to meet others, and when needed, access to info, advice and support from our trusted team: 

  • TUESDAY TEA & TOAST at the hall at the Good Shepherd on Mansel Way in Arbury CB4 2ET – bring your little one, grab a cuppa and some breakfast!  (8.45-10.30am)  Message Gemma 07862 386 005 to find out more. 
  • WEDNESDAY WELLBEING at the Methodist on Green End Road in Chesterton, CB4 1RW – is all about YOU-TIME, a child-free group focused on physical and mental well-being. We kick off with a fresh smoothie and then try the week’s activity – it could be Zumba, meditation, yoga, mindful drawing, etc (9-11am). Message Emma 07832 603 357 to find out what’s happening this week.

* Want to come but worried that you don’t know anyone?  We’re a friendly bunch – but we have other parents who have been through the same worries and volunteer to meet up and walk with you on your first couple of visits! Mention it when you contact the drop-in you want to attend.
