Junior Minstead

Junior Minstead was set up over 42 years ago to bring together Minstead children from the age of 3 upwards through a variety of events and get-togethers.

The activities are wide-ranging and can include anything from night hikes in the Forest in December to a Summer Sports Day in June.

A major highlight is the annual Junior Minstead Pantomime which takes place every March using a full cast of local children.

We welcome every child in the village to our club and you are free to attend as much or as little and as you’d like, but we find that involvement has opened the door to many lasting friendships both for the children and their parents!

Please contact the Membership Secretary, Naomi Harte, as below if you are interested in joining in and getting involved.
