Tickety Boo Club
‘Ever wondered about Grandpa’s childhood? Simple pleasures such as hopscotch, catapults and go-carts!?
Transport your Pre-Schooler back to the good old days and celebrate intergenerational fun with grandparents, aunts, uncles and friends at the Tapnell Farm Tickety Boo! Club, every Tuesday morning from 10.30am -12pm, term-time, in the farm park cafe.
Make the most of those vintage memories with games, hobbies, crafts and comics, with a retro nod to yesteryear. A chance for young and old to explore and reminisce together. A ‘show and tell’ circle-time and a singalong to finish.’
We would love you to use this club as an opportunity to invite an elderly person to join you, someone who might benefit from a morning out to have fun and be kid’s themselves. There are no steps to get to the club and it is very accessible by wheelchair, the café is warm and cosy and there is plenty of room to sit and join in. You might know someone who lives next door, or in an elderly home – They are welcome to bring a carer.
Children 1+ pay £4.50
Parents/Grandparents/Carers/Babies under 1 are FREE
All Tickety Boo’ers get 10% off in the café to spend whilst they are in the park that day – why not make the most of the day and have lunch together after the club (or a cheeky slice of cake and a cup of tea)
Access to the farm park is free from 10.15am – 1pm for those attending Tickety Boo (and having lunch after) – If you wish to spend longer after to play, there is a special rate to pay on the gate.
Booking is essential – Just send us an email firstname.lastname@example.org or call (01983) 758722 and we can book you on. You pay on arrival. There is limited space.
Intergenerational Relationships are important, and here’s why:
• Provide an opportunity for both to learn new skills
• Give the child and the older adult a sense of purpose
• Invigorate and energize older adults
• Help reduce the likelihood of depression in the elderly
• Reduce the isolation of older adults
• Help keep family stories and history alive
• Aide in cognitive stimulation as well as broaden social circles
