Back in June, we had a team building day where we all learnt to face paint with Cats Whiskers from Bristol. It was great fun (though unfortunately my boys don’t let me practice on them!) and we now offer this free service to community events. We hope that free face painting will help to keep the kids smiling at your event, and help to promote your community group as well as promoting our services. If you’d like us to attend one of your events, call us on 0800 043 2440.

On Monday, we will be offering free face painting, and giving out free copies of our magazine at this event, see you there!
SUPER MUMS CLUB OPENING EVENT MON 2nd DEC 10-12PM at the COURTENAY CENTRE, NEWTON ABBOT
SUPER MUMS CLUB is a place especially for busy MUMS to get pampered, take a workshop or class, get information from local services and advice on things such as parenting & work options. Mums can try & buy local products, or just relax with a cuppa while your under 5’s play with Pandamonium, our cheeky panda mascot in the play areas! We have some childcare time available for you so you can have a little time to yourself to indulge in a mini treatment, enjoy an activity or watch some demonstrations! Come and join us at the new mums playground! Our Mission is to help mums with small children access all the things that mums may need & enjoy. To give mums a little bit of ME time and to motivate, inspire or just relax them, while at the same time helping promote local small businesses, especially those owned by mums too.
We will be opening Super Mums Club in Newton Abbot, Torbay & Exeter in January. For information about what’s on offer at our OPENING EVENT see our Facebook page. It’s all for you! So come along for a taster of what we will have for you in the new year!

In June, the Opportunity Plus South West team all got together to do a Face Painting course with Cats Whiskers from Bristol. We had so much fun turning each other into tigers and pirates and butterflies! But this was more than a team building day. Part of our lottery funding is for us to support local community groups. We thought that offering free face painting at community events would be a great way to get people involved and to help with fundraising.
On the 7th August, Chloe went along to the Mary Rose Community Centre in Buckland, Newton Abbot. They were holding a celebration event for the Breastfeeding Peer Supporters who have recently completed their training with Healthy Babies UK to volunteer and help new Mums get to grips with breastfeeding. This was also part of World Breastfeeding Week 2013.
Chloe painted the faces of around 10 of the older children, and it was really popular – some children came back more than once to be turned into something different!!
Do your children like having their faces painted? What’s their favourite character to be painted as? So far we have found Spiderman and Butterflies to be the most popular designs.
