DADS are being invited to take time out with their kids at a new monthly group at Worcester Baptist Church on Sansome Walk.

Who Let The Dad's Out kicked off last month for fathers and children and is designed to be run along the same lines as a traditional parents and toddler group.

But instead of mums and toddlers, organisers hope to welcome fathers, grandparents or male carers and their children up to the age of seven.

All dads are welcome to join the group and spend quality time with their children and the event kicked off to warm reception with a number of dads and children showing their support.

One of the dads involved Pete Crookall, said: "My weeks are always really busy and I often don’t see as much of my daughters as I would like.

"This group is a great opportunity for me to spend some quality fun time with them in an environment where they and I feel comfortable. Of course, good coffee and bacon butties are big bonuses," he added.

Organisers have found there is a need for a ‘dads and tots’ group in the centre of Worcester and as well as spending time with their children, dads can also socialise with other fathers.

And because the group will be held on Saturdays between 10am and 12midday, organisers hope mums will have some well-deserved time off.

Organiser Don Russell said: “This is an exciting new event. We are looking forward to getting off the ground and hope that the dads of Worcester will join us.

"In fact, any dads with a spare morning can come along and check us out. Your children will thank you for it," he added.

Toys for the children will be provided and a craft activity will form part of the morning so dads can help their children create their own masterpiece.

Dads can enjoy tea or coffee and bacon sandwiches while refreshments will be provided for the children.
