London Mums Magazine

London Mums is THE FREE and INDEPENDENT peer support group for mums and mumpreneurs based in London. London Mums support each other through the joys and challenges women face with raising their children in a multicultural metropole. 

In addition to sharing views, chats and tips online, London Mums strongly believe in face-to-face interaction and organise ongoing activities for mums (and dads) and children – parties, multilingual playgroups, seminars, practical workshops, conferences, trips to art exhibitions in London, movies at the local cinema, nature walks. 

Backed by the Mayor of London, the service is run by mums and mumpreneurs for other mums and children and is FREE for everyone to join. In his own words, Boris Johnson said: Forums such as London Mums and Work Your Way are invaluable for forging new relationships, sparking ideas and providing advice in an easy, accessible way.

Putting Wrong Things Right during the Queen’s reign London Mums magazine

A new book Putting Wrong Things Right published by environmental organisation is marking 60 years of improvement during the Queen’s reign highlighting with great photographs and stats records of the London smog, the Aberfan disaster, outbreaks of smallpox and typhoid, the BSE crisis, and how the nation’s life has been improved.
