MOTHERS and babies bid a find farewell to a support group this week in 2009.

The popular Baby Snack Stop, a breastfeeding support group, ran at the Eastgate Community Church from 2006 offering support and advice to parents.

But it held its last session before the retirement of founder and former midwife, Carol Jewel, who said: "It was set up to improve breastfeeding rates in the area and was a place where parents could get support from other parents. It has been a brilliant few years and it has been really good to hold it at this community church, near the centre of town."

Pictured are some mums and youngsters at the group's final meeting.
