Sally Underwood, who has had 25 years’ experience in the ‘early years’ sector, launched the service offering a weekly workshop for mothers with babies aged between seven weeks and eight months.

The programme, which takes place weekly on Wednesdays between 1.45pm and 2.45pm, is designed to give parents the chance to learn techniques to ‘sooth and stimulate’ their children in a ‘fun and relaxed environment’.

Sally, who has lived in the area for 30 years and has been a qualified instructor for more than two years, said she chose the hub to extend the variety of services the former hospital building offers.

She added: “The class gives new parents valuable opportunities to engage in social activity with others, which is as important for their wellbeing as parenting can 
be isolating and overwhelming.”
