June 2014 Newsletter

Dear London Mums

Hopefully the Summer is here soon with a bang to break the bad spell of this long wet wintery season. But at least we can look forward to the Football World Cup (or are we?) and the Commonwealth Games. And it’s also the month of my birthday so I can only be cheerful 🙂 !

Our summer magazine issue will be online and in supermarkets as well as family-friendly venues across London at around mid June 2013!

To start things off we have our cover interview with TV doctor Ellie Cannon who tells us what it’s like to be a busy working mum, a NHS GP whilst being in the spotlight. We have an insightful interview with TV dad Jamie Theakston and wonderful Horrid Henry’s ‘mum’ Francesca Simon! The magazine will hit supermarkets and family-friendly venues across London at around mid June 2013.

Father’s Day this year is on 15th June. To help you find the perfect gift for your Dad or partner or father of your children, we have focused on a selection of original gift ideas that you can find in the London Mums Father’s Day Gift Guide.

Some London Mums will be busy getting school applications ready. Our expert compiled very practical and useful tips for your School Application.

Most of us are probably also getting their hands dirty to do some Spring Cleaning. Try these Quick & Simple Spring Cleaning Tips.
