Doors open at 9.30am. Morning tea served from 10am. It’s a good idea to arrive before 10.15am if you are going to join in with the big-latch-on and breastfeed – so you can find a seat and register. BIG-LATCH-ON-MOMENT is at 10.30am!! Lots of great spot prizes, toddler entertainment with Natural Magic Pirates from 10.35am – action songs and a charming puppet show. Please join us – we’d love to see you.
