NCT Abingdon welcomes every new parent. Our local groups, activities and events are run by volunteers. We help forge friendships and raise money for all of NCT's work, locally and nationally.

Baby Ramblers

Baby Ramblers is an informal walking group for parents, aiming to protect positive mental health by bringing parents together to socialise, enjoy some gentle exercise and get some fresh air.  Come rain or shine, we meet every Monday afternoon at 1.30pm and each walk takes in a cafe or pub for refreshments at the end.  Please check the Abingdon NCT Facebook page for details of where to meet each week.  No charge.  Dogs welcome.
