It's our 10 year anniversary!

c718d4df6b51ccfd986dcb6a2b8cfbbe.pngI have been running Raring2go! Sheffield for 10 years this March, where have all those years gone! Our very first issue was Summer 2009, my son was so impressed at being a cover star back then, the novelty soon wore off though, think it lasted all of about 2 issues, so I then involved friends kids too! This year I want to get more local children involved, so please make sure you follow us on Facebook to find out more and how you can put your child forward to be a future cover star with us…… Our Facebook page is Raring2go! Sheffield.
