Loughborough - Our Groups

Postnatal - Parent drop in and support group

Every week (check for school holiday dates) we host a Postnatal parent drop and support group on a Monday 10am -12noon. Come along and join us for some support, or just to catch up with other new parents.

Venue info

Salvation Army Church Community Centre, Burleigh Road, Loughborough, LE11 3BA


There is limited parking at the venue.

Alternative parking is 2 hours free at Sainsburys on Green Close Lane, LE11 5AS or Regents Street Retail park LE11 5AB which is pay and display. Both are approx. 3 minutes walk away.

Parking bays at Salvation Army

The parking bays on the right (if you are standing with your back to the doors into the Salvation Army) are for use by the Salvation Army. Group attendees can block these spaces and we usually park a whole row of cars down the middle. There are two bays on the left (closest to Ashby Rd) which are unnumbered and can be used. There are also two diagonal spaces in front of the building directly off Burleigh Road before you drive into the car park.

Please do not park in the other spaces.

Messy Play

Once a month we hold our weekend Messy Play group for the under 5's, which as the name implies, can get a bit messy and is especially popular with parents who aren't able to attend our weekday groups.  Our activities aren't always messy, but it's probably a good idea to have the little ones in old clothes.  Activities are usually themed and recent activities include planting seeds (lots of digging in soil!), cake or biscuit decorating, and finger painting. This group takes place on the first Saturday of most months - we do not run a sessions in August and the November date may be subject to change. Please check our Facebook page and our events search for dates.

Venue info

Emmanuel Church Hall, Forest Road, Loughborough, LE11 3NW


There is  plenty of parking at the venue, additionally parking on Forest road is free for 1 hour.
