Always a lovely morning, the Rainbow Beach Church Family are spoiling mums at their special Playgroup Mothers’ Day Morning Tea. It’s on at the Rainbow Beach School library, from 9.45am on Thursday May 6.
There will be open arms for baby cuddles, so mums can chat, sip and taste the scrumptious homemade treats brought along! All welcome.
