Happy New Year! 

2021 was certainly an interesting year, topped off by a magical nativity performed by all the children at Stepping Stones, aged between one and four years. The children performed brilliantly with Grayson telling people he was ‘Jovis’ a very Edalian Joseph, Megan stepping in at the last minute as Mary when Holly was unable to take part, Lottie sparkled as the star, Wise Women Molly and Merryn brought jingle bells inside their gifts. Two little Freddies crawled around as very cute sheep with Tommy and Ebbie as their shepherds (we missed Leo) and delightful little penguins Fenn and Jasmine. Gabriel was our very enthusiastic angel who didn’t ever want to get off the stage, came with his good news ‘pregnant, pregnant, pregnant – pop!’ The children sang beautifully, the parents provided magnificent costumes and we all laughed a lot. We are very proud of each and every child, and want to thank all the parents, volunteers and trustees for their support and contributions. 

We are all looking forward to what 2022 might bring for the children at Stepping Stones. No matter what the world around us throws, the children continue bringing their enthusiasm and joy to delight us all.
