We have various groups for bumps, babies and kids. They are small, friendly groups providing the opportunity for new mums and mums-to-be to meet on a regular basis to socialise and make new friends. Refreshments and a warm welcome will await you. Our groups are run on a drop-in basis, so there is no need to book ahead.
