For some time we have had a loyalty card scheme in North & East Halifax where families could have a card stamped every time they accessed a service. All fully stamped cards would then be entered into a quarterly draw for families to be in with a chance of winner a shopping voucher. Due to a poor take up of this scheme we have decided to put it on hold for a short while.
As a parent/carer do you think this is worth continuing or do you have any other incentive ideas?
Please submit your ideas on Facebook or through the query leave a comment bx at the bottom of this page!

We are no longer running the drop in coffee morning at St Michaels and All Angels School in Shelf due to drop in attendance. It has been advertised in our latest newsletter as currently running – this is a mistake. We are however hoping to start a Baby Stay and Play at the School in the near future. Keep checking the website and Facebook for updates.
