EARLY YEARS PLAYBUS APPEARING AT MCDIARMID PARK ON SATURDAY

PlayTalkRead, the Scottish Government’s early years campaign, will visit St Johnstone Football Club on Saturday ahead of their match against Motherwell from 1-3pm.

Actor, and star of CBeebies’ ‘Woolly and Tig’, Colin McCredie will join families on board the bus at McDiarmid Park in Perth to lead a story session ahead of kick-off.

Bookbug will also be running song and rhyme sessions and there will be lots of messy play, craft activities and games to enjoy.

The PlayTalkRead buses are free for families to visit. Experienced play workers on board lead activities demonstrating simple and low-cost ideas on how to incorporate playing, talking and reading with babies and little ones into daily routines.
