On Saturday our Summer 2016 Play on Pedals series came to a close, with everyone earning their certificates! It was great to see evidence of so much improvement in just six short weeks, with far fewer wobbles and a lot more confidence on display. Look forward to seeing you all freewheelin' around Drumchapel! Special congratulations to Kaci, Khloe, Scott, Layla-Jane, Dylan and Beth, who all earned their pedals in the form of a nifty Play on Pedals trophy, and thanks to Cycling Scotland and The Bike Station for all their help and support

Monday also saw the first session of our new Baby Steps programme for promoting positive parenting:
On Tuesday we had our regular baby massage session as well as 3D Play (I play, You Play, We Play together), which saw a lot of soft play action!
On Wednesday we hosted the weekly NHS Well Baby Clinic, had a fun 3D Family Afterschool Club at Camstradden Primary, and had a friendly and successful Tea & Tots session, where parents with babies can drop in for a chat and find out useful resources:
On Thursday we had Chatter Natter, the 3D Lunch Club at Drumchapel High, the second of our weekly Baby Massage groups
As well as a lot of smiles, laughter and play at the weekly Shake, Rattle & Roll parent and toddler music and movement session:
On Friday Sarah and Elaine prepared a fantastic chicken curry for the 3D Family Lunch, one so good it got compliments from Glasgow institution Mother India!
3D Drumchapel's John Muir group ventured out to Loch Lomond and Inchcailloch Island, and had a fantastic experience learning from the rangers, building tents, making fires and exploring the beautiful countryside
