Hi everyone,

I am moving to Chipping Norton with my husband and DS (13 weeks) in Feb half term - really excited

Does anyone know of any friendly groups I could join so we can spend some time with other Mums and babies?
- Would also be great to meet some Mums I can share a bottle of wine with now and again (babies not required for all socialising!)

Can anyone also tell me where the nearest water babies class is held?

I'm supposed to start work again in May and will also be hunting for a good childminder (Mon-Fri, 9-5) if anybody has a recommendation?

Thanks, and look forward to meeting some of you soon

Hi, I live near Deddington but Chippy is a lovely place! Not sure of local baby groups round your way.
I have a 14month son and we go to waterbabies in Sibford bbut there may be swimming classes at Chippy?

Hi, I lived in Chipping Norton but moved away 2 years ago. Still go often because inlaws live there.

When my DD was born we went to the The Ace Centre lovely place and the Health Visitors are based there as well. They might have their First Friends still on Tuesday afternoons where you can meet parents with babies under a year. It can be a bit cliquey but depends on you as a person. Once you are there you will soon find loads of other things to do and maybe more info about the swimming. We now live in Witney.

Re: Childminders, Chippy has a few probably about 5 now and its best if you get your name on a list very soon. One lady called Amanda lives in Overnorton just next to Chippy and she is very good with kids and might be able to recommend you someone. Amanda

Good Luck with your move.
