Don’t miss the summer picnic! Sunday 3 July, 11am to 2pm, Curdridge Reading Room
The summer picnic is coming! Please join us at Curdridge Reading Room, Reading Room Lane, Curdridge, SO32 2HE for a fun-packed party from 11am to 2pm on Sunday 3 July. Please bring your own picnic, but make sure you are also hungry enough for judging all the bake-off entries (with a free cuppa) afterwards!
Tickets cost £10 for member families and £15 for non-member families. (You can buy tickets on the door but they will cost more). Your family ticket allows you to bring as many family members as you wish to – grandparents, aunts and uncles, extraneous relatives welcome! You can buy your ticket now on our website, using paypal or bank transfer, or by sending a cheque made out to ‘Southampton Twins and Supertwins Club’ to 13 Coles Mede, Otterbourne SO21 2EG. You can also buy tickets at our Thursday club. Once inside, activities are all free, though we do ask for a donation if you eat cakes from the bake-off… and you will need money for raffle tickets!
We always aim to make the party suitable for a wide age range of children, with activities for babies, toddlers and bigger kids. As well as the beautiful field and playground to enjoy, we will have craft activities (including a badge machine), face painting, transfer tattoos, Amanda’s Action Club (music/dancing activity) and some sports day races involving things like hoops, quoits, sacks and… welly-wanging! We are also expecting some people from the local Air Ambulance who will be bringing information and activities.
Annual STSC Bake-Off
As you will know, most parents of twins take cake very seriously. The annual STSC bake-off is a mouth-watering competition where we challenge you to show off your baking skills with the most impressive and delicious cake you can produce, and bring it to the party to be judged by fellow party-goers! If you bring a cake, please bring a full list of ingredients to be placed beside it, so that people with allergies can decide whether to try it. For a small donation to STSC, anyone can try the cakes (yes, all of them) and vote on their favourite. There’s an STSC apron for the winner.
