President Donna Gray said the event, which runs from 11am to 3pm, would include a wide range of activities such as live entertainment, art and sporting activities, a children's ferris wheel, novelty balloons, face painting, self-drive mini hot rods, a children's clothes and toys secondhand stall, cake stall and sausage sizzle. Sunday was also the start of Toy Library Awareness Week which was one reason the library was holding the event, Donna said. She said it was a great way to bring families together and have fun. The Stoke Toy Library, which has been in existence for nearly 30 years, has a membership of about 120 families and that number has remained fairly con- stant. Most children using the toys were between 6 months and 6 years old, Donna said. So we are always looking for new fam- ilies to join us as they can replace the families who leave us when their children become too old. For a small joining fee, families have access to all these toys.'' Donna said a toy library was a wonder- ful facility for families as children often became bored with their own toys. Hiring different toys keeps them stimulated and challenged and they are no longer bored. It's vital for a child to play and explore and imagine. It's a very important part of learning.'' Families interested in joining the library should visit the website: libratu.com/library/stoke, contact Donna on 03 547 1112, or come along to the fam- ily day. Guides picnic for global Thinking Day Getting creative: Ranger Aimee Mullenger with from left, Emma Charles, Hope Gerrard and Victoria Charles.

Leader Sheree Coulton said World Thinking Day was an international celebration for girl guides and girl scouts worldwide, so the Arapiki group decided to do something to coincide with the occasion. A lot of the girls' parents joined us for a family picnic and then we were going to play some games but in the end we focused on doing some beach sculptures.'' During the picnic, Laura Coulton, 13, was presented with the Guides Aotearoa Award, the highest award in the guiding section. Sheree said it incorporated several different badges and qualifications such as leadership, camping and gen- eral interest badges. There are about 90 girls from six different units who are part of the organisation's Arapiki district.
