Dear London Mums
Our Winter magazine issue will be out soon – watch this space!
It will include exclusive interviews with Karren Brady, Sir Quentin Blake as well as Baking TV star Cat Dresser, Chef Aldo Zilli and Agony Aunt Dr Ellie Cannon (with her tips to help us out with all our health dilemmas).
At the end of October we’ll have another half term and entertaining the kids during the Halloween should not be too hard considering in London there’s so much happening and lots of events are FREE. Check our EVENTS’ CALENDAR or our ACTIVITIES SECTION as well as our Halloween Special below for inspiration on things to do. If you decide traveling across London is too stressful for you and your young children then check our GET CREATIVE SECTION (including Halloween Craft with links below) with tips for indoor activities.
