I'm moving to the area in a few months time and wanted to know if anyone could recommend me any baby groups, playgroups or clubs/things to do for my children (and myself!) in the area, so we can get out and meet some new people.
My tiddlers are 11 months and 4.
Any recommendations gratefully received!!

I am moving from Surrey to Tisbury in two weeks, i have a 6 month old baby and i too would like to find out about clubs in Shaftesbury. Did you have any joy with little monkeys? I can't find any contact details on the internet for them.
How are you finding Gillingham? my parents live in Buckhorn Weston.
Have you managed to meet new people???

There is a new group called Tots Play ( starting in Shaftesbury in September. There are different classes for different ages from birth to about 2.5 years.

Hello Girlies!
I've just joined the site so not sure the best way to contact people.
I would love to get some mums together for regular meetups. I moved to a village outside Shaftesbury last August and have since had great fun searching out lots of activities to take my little girl to who is 2 next month. We have activities nearly every day but would love to be able to go out with other mums which I find easier than being the new face trying to make conversation at these groups. It would also be nice to meet up at eachothers houses, I love making cakes so there's an incentive! As I also have teenagers I don't know many people with little ones so would be good for her to have some pals.

Hello, are you still looking to meet mums in the local area? I've posted recently in chat about getting to know others in the area.

We're a '2 mummy family', 33 and 35, with a 3.8 year old daughter. We're laid back, friendly, and 'normal' (!) and would mainly like to make friends for our daughter, but if we make our own new friends in to the bargain then that's a plus!!

We've only been here for a couple of months, and love it here, but would be great if we could make some local friends as our friends and family are all over 30 miles away.
