A little end of year celebration

As the library is now closed until he New Year I felt it was time to have a look back and here are some statistics from our year. 

We reopen at Ace Playce in Killingworth on 4th January and our first consultation appointments are from Thursday 7th. So as I have a little bit of down time I have been working out what we have done this year.  

In 2015 we made 774 individual sling hires. This doesn’t include those people who had one sling and extended hires. We currently have 103 slings out on hire. Our stock consists of 252 slings. We currently have 8 drop in sessions a month and it still costs just £8 for 4 weeks hire.

In terms of percentage increases we have increased our stock by 40%, our yearly sling hires by 26%, our Facebook page likes has increase by 45% and our group now has 1058 people in it.

It hasn’t been the easiest of years as local changes have made it harder for us to compete. But I still enjoy helping parents to carry their babies big and small. We have been running for 4.5 years so can confidently say we are the oldest and the original sling library. I have trained with the widest range of schools and continue to continue my professional development. I have plans for more training this year. I won’t stop.
