'First Words' - Quarterly eMagazine

We recently relaunched our quarterly newsletter, ‘First Words’ as a digital magazine. The first edition was published in December 2016 and we aim to be a valuable source of information for local parents. Click the cover below to read our latest issue, or check out the archive at the bottom of this page:



Winter 2017

'First Words' is published by a team of committed volunteers working in their spare time. Advertising revenue pays for the production costs of the magazine and any surplus funds are used to provide support and services for local parents. NCT Beckenham & Borders is a non-profit making organisation.

If you have ideas for magazine articles or would like to share your birth story, your local recommendations, parenting tips or a personal experience, we would love to hear from you! Contact newsletter.beckenham@nct.org.uk.
