After hearing about a group members trip to Pakistan, we spent a morning doing Henna Tattoos.
Stepping Stones North Edinburgh alongside Granton Early Years have moved to shiny new premises. The two services will work alongside one another to provide support for families living in North Edinburgh. Stepping Stones will continue to provide group work and childcare which will now take place in the new building. Here are some examples of the spaces where our service will run.

Families will be taken around the centre to see it first hand and children will be given the opportunity to settle into the playrooms.
Granton will have it’s first Community Day on Saturday 2nd September between 12pm and 4pm at Granton Parish Church. Stepping Stones will be there on the day alongside many other organisations and lots of information and activities for families. Bring your bike for a free service and pop along to our stall to say hello. Please see the flyer below for more information.
Over the past two weeks, 15 families have enjoyed residential trips to the Pilton Retreat out in Ratho. The soggy start to the month didn’t deter the families as they put on their jackets and wellies and embraced the Scottish summer. The first week saw the groups go to soft play, the beach, Blair Drummond and Muddy Boots farm. With the weather improving and the sun coming out the families away to Helix Park and The Kelpies, Craigie Farm for Strawberry picking and some messy outdoor play with a BBQ back at the centre. A great time was had by the families and staff alike, plans are already being made for next year. We with to say a huge thank you to Ken from Pilton Retreat for all his driving and help around the centre.
