A Warburton Christian Playgroup, run by the Warburton Seventh-day Adventist church members Ngaire and Alan Holman, won Playgroup Victoria’s inaugural Playgroup of the Month award.
Playgroup Victoria CEO Vivienne Cunningham-Smith told the group gathered to celebrate the award, “Seeing you all here is wonderful. This is what Playgroup is all about. It’s about linking families and children in communities and it’s about building communities. This group oozes community. I am really pleased to present to Warburton the Playgroup of the Month for August.” She then presented Ngaire with a Crayola pack gift basket.
