Hi, I'm going on mat leave at the end of this week and would really like to find a way of meeting up with new Mums in the local area before my life gets turned upside down sometime around the 18th of October. Can anyone recommend anything?
thanks a lot

NCT Bumps and Babes . There are a few Redhill mums with lo's on here - check out the West Sussex/Surrey Meet up thread.

where is nct bumps and babes held? I'm currently on mat leave with a 2 week old in reigate/redhill area if anyone is meeting up.

tbh I can't remember, think it was someone's home when ds was small, but I'm sure you could call the Reigate branch number and ask .

A few thoughts (I have older kids, so am a bit out of touch..)

- Have you got a copy of the local 'Grapevine' magazine - it lists all the local baby groups etc . There is also an on-line version I think?
Try the library, or baby shops for a copy. (Olimia on Reigate high street might have leaflets/ clubs/ etc on display?)

- have you done NCT or any birth preparation classes? They might provide friends in the early days
do the baby post-natal classes at East Surrey hospital

A lot of the local church halls have mums and toddler groups for after the birth - try Reigate St. Mary's or the church on Reigate High Street.

Hope this helps!

Hi Shinny try toddler group called Jolly Tots in the Coleman Redman, I think it is on every alternate thursday. I have recently gone back after mat leave but found people very friendly here when I could get there. Also the story time at Reigate Library on monday mornings.

Congratulations Shinny! Once you are out and about you'll find loads to do - always lots of mums/dads and babes in starbucks, story time at the library etc.
