We are THE free and independent peer support group for mums and mumpreneurs based in London. We support each other through the joys and challenges we face with raising our children (no matter how young or old they are) in such an exciting and sometimes isolating metropole.
In addition to sharing views and tips online, we believe strongly in face-to-face interaction. E-mails, newsletters, and websites are fine, but there are times when you just want to get out, get some fresh air, and meet up with other adults.
We understand that – we feel that way too. We organise a number of activities for mums (and dads) and babies, school children and even teenagers – including meet-ups, tweet-ups, workshops, conferences, trips to view exhibitions at the National Gallery, movies at the local cinema, nature walks and great parties.

And thus we welcome in summer. Read More »
