Dear London Mums
The Spring climate releases positive energy which we can hopefully channel into great initiatives. I am certainly more energetic and motivated then ever after an inspiring visit at 10 Downing Street at an exclusive reception for the Ronald McDonald House Charities.
Our very first Spring magazine issue is here! It’s filled with great interviews including Zoe Ball and her dad Johnny, Jools Oliver and Amanda Lamb; the second installment of our Johnny Rocket comic and a special Women’s Day insert covering our annual conference on International Women’s Day.
We are very excited about this event in collaboration with Work Your Way and the support of the Mayor of London which is a FREE all-day conference held at City Hall on International Women’s Day on 8th March 2013. The title is “NURTURING FEMALE ENTREPRENEURSHIP THROUGH THE POWER OF COLLABORATION” and the programme can be found in the magazine and on our dedicated page. Registrations are now closed as the event is SOLD OUT but you can ask to be added to a waiting list. If people cancel we will contact you. Simply email your interest to firstname.lastname@example.org as soon as possible.
Mother’s Day is around the corner and we have prepared a few features to inspire you to transform it into a special day.
We have put together a unique Mother’s Day Gift Guide 2013 with carefully selected gift ideas for women of any age.
If you are at a loss for things to do in London this Spring, search our improved events’ CALENDAR for family events, ATTRACTIONS and other family activities across London under the ‘ACTIVITIES’ section. We update these pages on a regular basis.
