Bumps & Babies Groups
We are very proud of our Bumps & Babies Groups - they offer new mums a great opportunity to meet other local mums, make friends and have a couple of hours a week where they can get together over a cuppa and a biscuit to share thoughts, concerns and questions about motherhood. Suitable for expectant and new mums with babies from newborn to crawlers and open to everyone (members and non-members). We currently have groups in Central Croydon, Purley and South Norwood.
Dad & Children Messy Play
Calling all dads! Come along to messy play at the Apple Factory Cafe on Saturday 8 April. It'll be great fun for the kids (up to 6 years) and a chance for you to meet other dads in the area. £3.75 per child. Grab yourself a bacon sarnie and tea from the cafe too. The meet up will happen on the 2nd Saturday of every month. See you there!
