The First Day School Committee and Wilton Quaker Meeting are delighted to let you know that we are offering a new place for children, appropriately, in the heart of meeting for worship.

Any children attending Meeting or First Day School (Sunday School) can now choose to sit on a rug on the floor in front of the fireplace. Other children, as well as one friendly adult, will be there too!
