The Nest: A NCT Parent and Baby Group in St. John's

The Nest is an informal baby group, open to both members and non-members of NCT, with the aim of providing a relaxed place for you to come for coffee, biscuits and the chance to meet other local parents. It's a great opportunity for new parents to meet others with babies the same age or older and swap stories or ideas about caring for your little ones. There are books on parenting that you are welcome to borrow and leaflets about other activities in the local area. We have blankets, cushions and toys for you to use and we usually end with a couple of songs. We periodically run themed sessions e.g. Halloween, Christmas card making etc. Check our Facebook page for upcoming events!

'The Nest' is held at the St John's Memorial Hall on the Lye in St John's (GU21 7SQ) and runs every Thursday. We ask for a donation of £2 to help cover the cost of refreshments and hall hire. Unfortunately we cannot cater for older toddlers as well, and are promoting this only to parents whose babies are not too mobile.

We are always looking for new volunteers as our babies grow up so quickly! For further details, please contact us at
