9.30 - 11.00 (on hold) Mum's the Word

A peer-supported coffee morning for all Mums!

9.30-11.00 at Portishead Childrens Centre

Our group is for mums who are looking for a little more than a toddler group or coffee morning.
We are all mums and we share so much experience between us that it seems such a shame to keep it to oursleves. We are open to all mums regardless of your child’s age. There will be peer supporters on hand to talk to anyone who is feeling lost or alone, providing safe non-judgemental support. Even if you just fancied meeting up with likeminded mums, it could also be an opportunity to meet new people.

For anyone who is interested in coming along, please see our Facebook Page or request to join our Closed Facebook Group or even if you have some suggestions/stories we welcome your input.

Thanks
Sarah & the team

10.00 (Weekly - seasonal) Beach Buddies

Back every Spring – please join the Facebook Group to get in touch with Pam if you’d like more information.

A FREE group, meeting weekly at Sugarloaf Bay – check the Facebook Group for details before each session.

Speaking with local parents, I think there is interest in getting children out in nature more and I’d like to start the ball rolling for a group of parents and children who can meet regularly and do this. Not an organised toddler group but a meeting of families who have a love of nature! We have some lovely beaches along the coastline and I’m putting Sugarloaf Bay forward as a suggestion because it has good parking and access and has been a big hit with the children I work with, of all ages. So what’s the idea? To get together and let children of all ages explore and play together. I’m thinking babies and preschoolers during term time then older siblings join in during school holidays. For the parents to bring their own ideas, knowledge and fun to the experience. For parents to also step back a bit, where possible, and let the children create social connections and to become independent. For the parents to meet other parents and have their own social opportunity. For word of mouth to grow the group, inviting anyone from any area to come and join in.
