It’s a great chance to meet other new mums and chat about what’s been happening with your little people whilst getting some fresh air and gentle exercise. We’re a really friendly bunch and it’s a great way to start the week!
We’re completely volunteer led so if anyone has any free time and a heart to support other mums whilst enjoying some fresh air yourself then we’d love to hear from you or just pop along on a Monday morning!
