Toddle, Waddle & Picnic

The Oxford NCT are proud to announce their first Toddle Waddle and family picnic event on Sunday, 3rd July. Oxford Sling Meet will join this event!

We will be meeting in Christ Church Meadows, in front of the visitor entrance to the college at 11am. Access is from St Aldates (accessible entrance, buggy friendly).The walk (approx. 1h) will take us at a leisurely pace on a circular route around the meadows and along the river for a bit. It is suitable for all families with babies, toddlers and older children and all expectant parents who would like to meet some other families locally.
The walk will happen in any weather (apart from the unlikely case that the meadows are flooded).If the weather is nice, feel free to bring a picnic for afterwards! We will provide cake!The walk is free to all but small donations towards our other branch activities are much appreciated.Everyone is welcome, no need to be an NCT member, so please spread the word among your friends.If you have any questions, please email Jen on

Playground Sling Gathering

Join us at Headington’s best kept secret: Bury Knowle Park’s Adventure Playground.

There’s lots of swings, slides, springy bouncers, balancing sculptures and climbing frame in the middle of the big sandpit amongst other things.

Outside of the playground are bigger swings on longer lengths, plus a zip slide.

There’s a hidden library in the grand house (anyone have any info on that?)
AND a sensory garden for the tactile curious across the other side of the park.

There are many beautiful trees in the park and a magic Story Tree.

To get there:

BUS: get off on London Road near the main cross roads and the post office.

PARK: at Waitrose.
You’ll need coins to do so.
