In early 2019, Cloch launched a club for our Under-5’s. During the pandemic summer of 2020, we were able to use the club to distribute free activity packs to our youngest tenants. Since then, the service was reduced as staff focussed on other areas. We are now back and fully operational and this includes Young Clochie. Staff have worked hard to identify missing children from our lists and we are in the process of catching up with activity packs and joining the Dolly Parton Imagination Library.
A Young Clochie Club membership allows our youngest tenants the opportunity to be part of the wider Cloch family at the same time as learning and having fun with their parents, guardians or other household members. Membership is free for Cloch tenants although we would encourage parents or guardians to take out membership of the Association for only £1 (for life).
When they join, Young Clochies’ will:
• receive a welcoming goodie bag;
• will be recognised with a card at Christmas and on their Birthday;
• will be members of the club until they turn five.
We have partnered with the Dolly Parton Imagination Library to provide a free book every month until each child turns 5 years old. The Dolly Parton Imagination Library is a book gifting programme devoted to inspiring a love of reading in the hearts of children everywhere. Each month, enrolled children from birth until they turn five, receive a high quality, age-appropriate book in the post. This service would be free of charge for your family as Cloch Housing contribute to the costs
