 Dear Members,

Welcome to our November Issue. I think we can say we have adjusted and settled into the “new norm” in Thailand.

As a new volunteer I can say it has been a busy time for BAMBI as we have reopened most of our playgroups and activities with some tweaks to ensure we have safety measures in place. Our playgroup team has done an excellent job in managing and coordinating with our playgroup venues and we are happy to be able to add some new additions. 

Recently, Chaophraya opened on the riverside as well as baby massage in Sathorn. It is so great to see options available in the various areas our members live.

Splash Bash playgroup was also held at Bangkok Dolphins for ages 3 months- 4 years and all sessions were full! Look out for the next one in the next few months.

Recently we ran a survey to all members to gain feedback on how we can better improve our services. Hopefully, you had the chance to complete it.

We are currently in the process of reviewing and creating actions from the feedback we received to better meet the needs of our members.

We have also added to our amazing activities program including football, dance, yoga, nature. If you have not heard about our activities I highly recommend having a look on our website for more information. Recently toddler music was added and it has proven to be popular and has been fully booked since day one. 

We also held our first yard sale since COVID restrictions lifted and what a huge success it was! Despite the heavy rain we saw approximately 120 people shopping. All income including vendor tables and leftover items from the Swap Shop were donated to the Fellowship Foundation for Child and Youth Development. We are so grateful to be able to support and give back to the community in need. We also had a storage cleanup and were able to donate four pallets of kids’ items to the Mirror Foundation. 

Also back on the calendar are our pop-up events. Our pop-up team did a great job in organising the first one back and it was so great to see so many of our current members and new members enjoying the morning at Storytime Preschool.

Behind the scenes of BAMBI, our database champion has been working on online registration at all playgroups, events & activities. You will now be able to scan in which means we are eliminating paper & streamlining our processes. Amazing efforts!

I hope to be able to personally welcome you to our events with our wonderful team of volunteers.

Terryn Schlenther
Vice Chairwoman
