NANNIES, grannies, granddads, glam-mas and pops are being sought to join a unique community-run group in the Perth Hills.

Roz Osborne from Parkerville Playgroup said the centre’s intergenerational playgroup was down to its last nanna and was at risk of folding.

“The session runs every Thursday from 9am until lunchtime,” she said.

“Currently we have Tilly and her Granny Jenny who attend, but they are the only ones sadly.

“We’d love to give them some company.

“It’s a great opportunity for grandparents to spend time with their grandchildren in a safe and fun environment, as well as with others who understand the joys, challenges, mess and magic of looking after grandchildren.”
