“Our heart is to see families in Falmouth thriving”
Family Time was established in December 2012 and has run on a monthly basis ever since. The heartbeat of Family Time is creating a fun, safe and friendly environment to welcome families to, in order for them to spend quality time together. Family Time runs on a Saturday morning, once a month between 10.00am - 12.00 noon. During these sessions we have a family-centred craft activity which families can the takeaway. The craft provides helpful and empowering ways for parents or carers to connect with their children in every day life (for example - thankfulness jars - a way to encourage parents / carers and their children to write down something they're thankful for each day and keeping these memories in the 'thankfulness jar'). We also have a bouncy castle, soft-play, toys for all ages and provide table games for families to play - all this alongside great coffee, homemade cakes and other refreshments.
We also have extra Family Time events that celebrate particular times of the year. For example the Family Time Christmas Party, The Neon Light Party (a light & bright Halloween alternative), Easter Egg Hunts and many more.
Currently, we see that Family Time is a great way for us to connect with families in our community. Through these amazing connections we can see that there are often additional needs that families have that we hope to start meeting as Family Time grows and develops. We long to see families in our community thriving and we know we are well placed to enable this to happen.
