... hello and welcome!

I've just signed up as local editor for Staffordshire. I know the place has been a little empty for a while so I’ll be working to improve the listings on here to make it more useful and – most importantly – to arrange some RL meet ups for us.

There are some great success stories for other local sites and we’d love to replicate that here. Many mums have told HQ that these get-togethers have been a "life line".

You don’t have to keep the same nickname on Local as you have on the main site, so if you’re worried about ‘outing’ yourself then there’s no need.

Even if you can’t make a meet up in the flesh then get chatting on the talk boards, make yourself comfy and have a brew some wine and cake

And if you want to meet other lovely Mumsnetters then sign up here

its nice to see some "local action", I wish you well in encouraging to other locals to join in as we seem to be an uncharacteristically quiet bunch!

Hi helly

Yes, it is very quiet. I admit I was put off coming on here for a long time because it was so quiet, but there's only one way to stop that!

I wonder if anyone else is out there lurking <peers>

Hi, I've just moved into the area. Do you ever get together for a cup of coffee? be nice to get to know new mums. Let me know

Hi Sylvie. There's not been a meet up yet but it is something HQ want us to start up ASAP.

If anyone else is interested let us know and we'll get busy arranging something.

Hi sylvie and welcome. Whereabouts are you? I'm right at the top of the county smile

Sorry, I have not had time to log on for a few days.
I am in Lichfield. I would love to get a coffee morning group to get to know some mums. My kids are teenagers but we are not from around here and therefor have little contacts.
Also I am looking for work. I do not want to be freelance so want to work for someone else. My skills are IT, Client facing environments, Fluent French and Spanish, like to work with people, have loads of experience having worked for big and small companies.

Sorry, nowhere near Lichfield but if you are after it work and are fluent in French and Spanish have a look at JCB, Michelin and Bet 365 smile

Shame you are not near Lichfield. There does not seem to be much going on in Lichfield and being from Lonodn, I really feel a bit deprived. I would of course like to be proven wrong! I would organise coffee mornings but need to find mums out there first!

Thanks for the info, how do I find Michelin and Bet 365?

Voicesinmyear Fri 20-Dec-13 15:46:25

Michelin and bet365 are both employers in Stoke fsmile

Suppose its harder to meet people when your DC are growing up. We moved when dc1 was 2 and I went along to my local nct group and made friends there.

Is there any mummies from or near the Tamworth area. Not lived in the area that long and would like to make some friends grin xx

LifestyleMummy Sat 26-Nov-16 15:08:17

Voicesinmyear Sat 26-Nov-16 17:16:21

This thread is from 3 years ago. I think the Editor's post is vacant now smile

lifelineMummy I am from Newcastle under lyme and looking for meet ups if your still around? I can't believe how quiet these boards are..a

Voicesinmyear Mon 06-Feb-17 18:21:47

@K7njo have you seen the other post where a Mum in Stoke is after friends?

Not MN but I when mine were little I used to like the p,aygroup at St Peters in the Westlands. Think it's still running smile
