March 2012 Newsletter

Dear London Mums

Spring is in the air and we should use the positive energy to be more creative and efficient.

The biggest news this month is that the Mayor of London is now officially supporting our organisation. The good work done over the years has been recognised and we are happy to celebrate this and London 2012 with you at our annual conference on 8th March 2012 covering Social Media Magic in collaboration with Work your Way and TV star Saira Khan and award-winning entrepreneur Paula Wynne. If you want to register send us £10 donation via PayPal using the DONATE button (on the right hand side of this page) and mark ‘8 March 2012’ as the reference. If you don’t have PayPal check details on how to register in an alternative way here: We will have goodie bags worth £25.

I look forward to seeing lots of you there. We already have 100 attendees but we can squeeze a few more in.

This month London Mums will also attend as an exhibitor and media partner the LIVE, a free one-stop shop for candidates looking for jobs, advice and business opportunities.. LIVE London is to be held once again at the Business Design Centre in Islington on 27th March 2012, 9am-4pm.

Children are welcome – there are crèche spaces available bookable on the day. It’s FREE so grab your ticket online and pay us a visit there.

It’s almost Spring time and we have lots of energising activities and fun things to do with you. Our London Mums’ playgroup in SW London will have a belated Carnival and Spring party jointly with Ole’ Kids with pinata, dressing up, fun games on 12 March from 4 to 5,30 pm at Eddie Catz Putney.

We only have a couple of places available so if you are interested please pay £6.50 per child via the donate button with reference
