I live in the royal arsenal development in woolwich and have a 7 month old daughter. I've made some friends through the brookhill surestart centre but some mums will be going back to work soon and another will be moving from here so I'm looking to meet some more mummies! I see tonnes of new mums around the development but there doesn't seem to be any social groups for kids of this age, and I don't think anything goes on at dial arch? Please let me know if this is wrong?
If anyone wants to meet up for walks along the river with the babies or coffee breaks where the babies can socialise together, or mums to be then drop me a line :-)
If anyone knows of any good local clubs for babies around the 6month age, please let me know!

Thank you!
Cheryl and Nicole

Also would there be any interest in setting up a new group on the Woolwich arsenal? If so, I'm happy to organise it by contacting the dial arch manager or cornerstone cafe owner (who I know already). If there is sufficient interest in a new formalised sort if group, I'm happy to do this.

Hi Cheryl

If you're interested, I'd love for you to be our Local Ambassador for Woolwich! All we ask is that you organise a meet once every 4-6 weeks or more often, if you wanted to. Drop me an email if you'd like to discuss - greenwich@mumsnetlocal.com

I look forward to hearing from you!

Hi Cheryl,
I'd be happy to meet up, I live in Woolwich/Plumstead and have an 8 1/2 month old baby girl. Am also happy to introduce you to some other mums that I meet up with who live in or around Woolwich.

Hi Pam,
Thank you for your message. I would love to meet up :-)
Where do you live? I'm above the little tesco on the royal arsenal development, if you know it? My daughter is 7 months old, very sociable and active!

I've spoken to the dial arch about a new coffee group and they are happy to let me run a baby and parent meet up with discounts (buy 5 drinks, get 6th free with loyalty card). The events lady is meeting me next Monday to show me round and I can choose a suitable area, they will provide toys and mats to put down for the babies which is great. I've updated the meet up to Tuesday afternoon 13:30 if that suits you? Hope to see you there.

I find that classes aren't suitable for her at this stage, as soon as I take her out anywhere she falls asleep! Coffee groups are good to meet mums but the babies don't have much space to crawl and play so that's why I'm doing this dial arch one. The other mums that I know tend to do play dates at our homes but sadly 2 of my friends are moving out of London. I can introduce you to a couple of lovely ladies too, both extend our circle of friends!!!

Nice to hear from you,

Ps I may be free on Thursday if you wanted to meet up somewhere? I was going to go to breastfeeding club at brookhill but I don't always go!

That's fantastic news, Leu01cn! Sounds like it's going to be a great meet up grin

That's great news, I'm impressed! Bet it will be a very popular group. I should be around Tues so will definitely see you there. I could even help you set up if you like. We're near Plumstead Common but I know that little Tesco, I was in the Cornerstone Cafe next door the other day smile

My little girl is also very sociable and active and I find coffee groups/lunch meet ups a bit tricky because she's always itching to get out of the high chair and wreak havoc! So it's great you're organising something that offers the best of both for mum and baby smile

I'll send you a personal message with my contact details so we can arrange a meet up. Think I'm supposed to be meeting some other mums on Thursday but sure I could meet up with you beforehand or you could even come along. Let me know if you don't get my personal message, not sure I know how to do it!

Look forward to meeting you.

Hey Mummies,

I'm happy to read your conversation since I'm also looking for some Mums to meet as well. I moved from Germany to Royal Arsenal two weeks ago and don't know anybody here. Are you already meeting at the dial arch and could I join your group? I've got a 3 months old baby boy and I'm sure he would love to make new friends as well!
I'm looking forward to hearing from you!!
