Ellon playgroup toy sale

ANOTHER sale of playgroup toys will be held in Ellon on Saturday (November 10).

The first took place on October 27 and resulted from the closure of Ellon Community Centre playgroup and 2’s group last year.

Although Community Learning and Development are continuing to use the rooms formerly occupied by the groups as a family resource - there is a significant surplus of toys and equipment suitable for using in pre-school groups.

All the equipment belongs to the Ellon Community Development Group, who are giving local pre-school groups in the Ellon area the chance to obtain the toys for a suggested donation price.

Sally Sheehan, community learning and development worker at Ellon’s Ythan Centre, said they still had plenty of toys left over from the first sale.

She told the Times: “We are holding another sale this Saturday. From noon until 1pm playgroups, nurseries and childminders will have the opportunity of buying the equipment.

“It will then be open to everyone in the community who wants to make a donation.”

The sale will take place in the Boys Gym in the Old Academy building.
