London Mums May 2017 newsletter including Half Term activities for families

May 08 2017

 

Dear London Mums

Spring does not seem to launch and Summer is already at the door. My son is in year 6 and I feel these primary school years have gone so quickly. Before I know my son will be finishing secondary school and will be gone to Uni… I reflect on time and my past 10 years running the London Mums community. Wow! Time flies. In this newsletter, I have packed lots of ideas for the forthcoming May Half Term activities for families in London and beyond as well as ideas for the Summer holidays. In the meantime I am working on our 10th anniversary magazine issue including interviews with Hollywood actress Reese Witherspoon and former tennis ace Annabel Croft, among other fab content.

How to support and encourage budding screenwriters

Mar 01 2015

When I was ten years old I was determined to re-make Jaws. I knew the film backwards, and had a brilliant plan to shoot it with a papier-mâché shark in Brighton. All I needed was a cast and a crew. Oddly, my fellow classmates were less than enthusiastic as I lacked a camera, film, props… in fact I had no film making equipment of any kind whatsoever. And, more importantly, I didn’t have any kind of script. It was all in my head, and so I had no way of conveying what I wanted and so my dream faded away.
