About Little Fishes

Little Fishes provides a warm, friendly and supportive atmosphere for parents and carers with their children. Each week there can be craft, story and song times, and refreshments, as well as plenty of time for children to play with the toys and activity equipment. During the summer we use the grounds of St Peter’s Church for extra activities, including water play. Special events are organised throughout the year, which include special activity services in St Peter’s Church at Christmas, Easter and Harvest, a summer Teddy Bears Picnic with bouncy castle and an annual trip to Banham Zoo.

The Little Fishes Team
