Warwickshire Central

Welcome to our branch website! We are an active and welcoming branch with a number of events running throughout the year to support families. All our events and services are open to everyone - follow the links on the right for more information.

Our branch is led by an enthusiastic group of volunteers and we aim to offer local parents and parents-to-be invaluable support, services and NCT events, to help them get the most out of their new roles.

Current events:

  • Netball on Mondays -8-9pm A Social excercise group meeting every monday night in term time. £3 Show up and play any week you can. No commitment. All abilities welcome. Many of us hadn't played since school when we first came along. We happily go over rules etc. We do a warm up together, then grab bibs and play, swap around positions, play some more, then cool down so we don't hurt too much the next day! It's on the outdoor courts at North Leamington School. Wear layers in the winter. Join our facebook group for more info: https://www.facebook.com/groups/402790599742729/?fref=ts
  • Weekly Walks on Wednesdays - 1:45 (for2pm) for about an hour   take some exercise, socialise with other parents and carers and enjoy the great outdoors over the coming months. Suitable for parents and carers of little ones who can be pushed or carried around for an hour. Email weeklywalks.nctwarks@gmail.com or keep an eye on our Facebook page . Due to the lovely British weather venues can change, the best way to keep up to date is by Facebook.
  • Running Mamas on Thursdays - 7pm meet next to the tennis courts in Beauchamp Square, Leamington (at the top of the parade) for some stretching before going out on our route. This is a fun way to get from 0-5k and beyond. You can walk, jog or run the route each week and we pop into The White Horse for a catch up afterwards. Email: runningmama.nctwarks@gmail.com
