Tracy Price, manager of Busy Bodies for the last 25 years, said: “It is quite an achievement to reach 40 years as many groups are folding at the moment. It’s all down to the parents with all their help with fundraising events.

The group has around 30 children from two and a half years old to five-years-old.
