Ready to party!

24 June 2015


This year our annual Post Pals summer party is being held on Saturday 27th June 2015. All our Post Pals families, past and present, and also all our volunteers are welcome.

We have lots happening at our animal themed party. There will be entertainment for all ages and abilities including face painting, a huge jungle slide, ball pool, bouncy castle, funky hair (have your hair done in a cool style, have colour, glitter or clips added), a great children’s entertainer to kick things off and so much more. Not only will you get to meet other families but Peppa Pig, Minnie and Mickey Mouse will be dropping in too. The pig and mice aren’t the only animals you will meet though as Ben is returning from last year with an even bigger range of animals to learn about, stroke, watch fly, feed and hold. Last year all the animals were loved but the baby meerkats and Python were a huge hit!

Please come along and join in the fun, the more the merrier.

Hope to see you soon,

Vikki & the Post Pals team


Location and time –
It takes place at the same hall and garden as the past couple of years. The address is St Lawrence’s Church Hall, Browns Lane, Effingham, KT24 5NL. The party starts at 12.30pm and has scheduled activities until 6pm but last year some families stayed playing until 8pm.

Next door is a bigger hall with playing fields which has Village Day on, this isn’t us! We have a gate to our car park and will have a big Postman Pat balloon out and ‘Party here’ banner.

Travel –
There is a small car park (with disabled spaces) at the hall and on road parking in the quiet street. The closest big station is Leatherhead and we will be running lifts to and from on the day. If you need a lift please could you email me on with your mobile number, what time your train will be arriving, how many of you there are and if you have a wheelchair with you.
Post Pals has some money put aside to help families who can not afford to otherwise attend.

Disabled information –
There is wheelchair access to everything including toilets and disabled parking in the car park.

Weather –
The forecast for the day is currently dry but we have activities for fun in all weathers.

Accommodation –
We recommend the Leatherhead Travelodge due to the location (lots of cafes and restaurants and is minutes away from the station) and we can do pick up and drop offs to the Travelodge. We are NOT booking any rooms like in previous years but will be able to help some families with the cost. We recommend booking now as family rooms are only £35.


There is no internet at the hall so if you need to make contact on the day please text or ring Vikki on 07748 697475 or Steve on 07795 564006. Please note these numbers are just for contact on party days and not general Post Pal phone numbers.


We look forward to seeing you all!
