wellington rocks on the common, there is also toad rock at rusthall, there are activities down the pantiles look in the courier. The library has story time at southborough, not sure if its term time only. The museum in T. Wells has things on too.

Thanks - am beginning to get excited but also trying to be realistic that it will take time to get to know people and get used to new area!
