Next Baby Teas

Looking for new Hosts, if you would like to host another Next Baby Teas please contact:

Are you an expectant or recent 2nd time parent.. or 3rd.. or 4th?!! Do you want to meet other parents in the same situation? Do you want your kids to meet new playmates with siblings?

The Next Baby group hold informal get-togethers hosted by group members (there is no obligation to host if you don't want to!) Parents can chat about the rewards and challenges of an expanding brood over tea, coffee and biscuits whilst babies and older children play in a child-friendly home. The teas are drop-in and held approximately weekly, at a day and time that suits the host. Older children are always welcome.

Next Baby Teas are a low-key way of getting out of the house with your little ones when playgroup and the like seems overwhelming. A fantastic way of making friends and gaining the support of other parents in and around the area.

We have a tea scheduled for 18th September, please email for details or to join the mailing list.
