New skills for Little Nippers thanks to town grant

A group that works to improve the team building and social skills of Tipton children has received a special Sandwell Council grant.

The Little Nippers group provides children aged 5-11 from the Princes End area with workshops on sports, cosmetic making, cookery classes, robotics, seasonal crafts and movie sessions.

Children also got to enjoy a trip to Dudley Zoo’s Winter Wonderland event where they met Santa Claus and received a present. The Thursday sessions started in November at St Mark's Church Hall and will run to mid-March. Group chair, James Marsh, said:

“I would like to thank Sandwell Council and local councillors who have supported us with funding to enable children to visit Santa and provide sports equipment and craft materials that will be used by children and make a difference to their lives.”

It is hoped the activities will encourage children to use their imagination and develop new skills and hobbies. Children taking part in the skills workshops will also receive an information booklet, which they can take home with them, so they can continue with the activities at home.

A town grant of £691 is supporting these various activities.
