Welcome to Flintshire and Wrexham branch. NCT Branches are your local parent support network, helping you become the parent you want to be.
The branch is friendly and informal. Run by local parents, we offer support, information and friendship to new parents and parents-to-be. All our events are open to members and non-members of the charity.
Check out our Events or Facebook page for the latest updates but the following are usually well attended:
Loggerheads Country Park, near Mold, every Monday at 10am. We meet in the cafe to allow latecomers to catch up, and then go for a walk (depending on the weather!). Some of the walk is pushchair-friendly, but we do usually walk up to the top which is not pushchair friendly so we recommend a baby carrier and sturdy shoes!
Prams in the Park:
Alyn Waters, Country Park in Gwersyllt, near Wrexham. Every Thursday at 10am - a stroll around the pram friendly path, followed by a coffee and a chat with other mums in the cafe. The path is sling/pram/bike/scooter friendly so great for toddlers as well as babies.
Bumps & Babies:
Weekly groups that meet up for drinks and a chat:
Wrexham - Ty Pawb
Every Tuesday 12.30-2.30, everyone is welcome, and there is a little play area for old babies/toddlers.
We also have meet ups on other days occasionally, according to volunteer availability.
We are always on the lookout for new events, if you are interested in hosting an event then please do get in touch!
Look out for our one-off events, too - Xmas parties, summer picnics, and much more!
Nearly New Sales
We hold two Nearly New Sales a year - the next one is Saturday 22nd September 2018 at Mold Leisure Centre, 1pm-2.30pm (you can enter at 12.30 with proof of NCT membership).
Our Nearly New Sales are very different to other Preloved baby sales. Everything is laid out like a shop, with all sellers items grouped together in categories, clothing on rails in size order etc, and everything paid for at one till.
We even have card machines so you don't need to worry about cash!
Plus the first 150 buyers get a goody bag full of great samples.
Entry is £1 charity donation per adult.
