Hi I am looking for new members for some of my the Marie Curie Cancer Care Fundraising Groups in Wellingborough, Northampton and Daventry/Long Buckby. They meet approximately once a month and all the members are ladies at the moment, of various ages and backgrounds, with children at various ages too. They support our campaigns locally, such as collections in March and November, hold a blooming great tea party which is a great way of getting to know your neighbours and local community as well as organise their own fundraising event. They have all become good friends through the groups.

Please let me know if this might interest anyone. I can be emailed or called 01604 442315 (Sally Veness, Community Fundraiser)

Hiya! I live in Northampton town and have a 6 month old boy. Am shy but could be cajoled into meet ups grin

Who knew Kettering had so many mumsnetters smile

TheWoollybacksWife Tue 21-May-13 20:32:01

Four! Lawks, at this rate we'll need two tables. grin

thekatsatonthematt Tue 21-May-13 20:27:01

Hiya, I'm Kettering too. Seems like there are more of us here than we thought! grin

TheWoollybacksWife Tue 21-May-13 20:26:24

Whoop! That makes three of us...

Hi everybody. I'm in Kettering. I would be interested in a meet up.

CorbyBornAndBred Tue 21-May-13 19:30:44

me!! me!! i'd love to meet MNers grin

TheWoollybacksWife Mon 20-May-13 10:20:20

Right. I have another MNer stood behind me poking me with a sharp stick to keep me motivated!

Would anyone be interested in a North Northants meet up? Covering Kettering, Corby, Rothwell, Desborough and all the surrounding villages. This is by no means an exclusive list and the meet up would be open to all who can make it.

Post if you are interested and I will try to arrange something suitable.

Hi, anyone in East Northamptonshire area? I'd be happy to organise a meet up in this area..... I'm OLD (45), not working at present, single mum, with DD aged nearly 8 and DS aged nearly 6, just to get that out of the way right now!

SJH87 Fri 19-Apr-13 17:16:03

Hello, thought I'd pop my head in. I'm new to local!

Fluffy I must be near you I'm between Dav and Banbury too!

Fluffysortofname Mon 25-Mar-13 08:58:57

I am thinking of starting a meet up in the 'Daventry' area of the meet up board. That would catch people from up by Rugby, and over to Northampton town itself as it's an easy drive West from there to Dav. People from down near the Oxfordshire/Warwickshire border could come up that far perhaps. Banbury area. I'm just not sure enough people will get to see it's being organised. (I started this thread and even i've not looked at it for ages, lol.)

Maybe a couple of us could meet and compare notes on starting a regular meet up proper in NN11 on MN? Share the load so to speak.

Fluffysortofname Mon 25-Mar-13 08:48:49

Hi first. I'm near Dav. Half way between Daventry and Banbury actually. There's a regular meet up being organised on the milton keynes board i think. I was going to attend the first one but couldnt make it on the day.

I have older kids, and feel a little out of place meeting up in soft play centres and such. I'd rather go out for a coffee or a glass of wine grin

I'm near Long Buckby/Daventry. Its just I feel so old at most of the groups. I worry that when I am on maternity leave DS will have nobody to play with his own age. Currently he is very sociable as the childminder takes him to childminder things but when he is with me for a few months he won't have that. He needs playmates his own age, and so do I!

CorbyBornAndBred Wed 20-Mar-13 18:27:25

where abouts are you, first?

there are some fab toddler groups about for when you're on ML

firstsecondthird Wed 20-Mar-13 16:36:22

I was beginning to wonder whether anyone in Northants used the local board.
I find it difficult to meet other mums that I can relate to as I am a bit older than most at the mother and baby groups (42) and work 4 days a week in a full on job so don't have a lot of time. My DS is 2 and I am expecting another baby in the summer so will be off work for a while and am worried about getting lonely and isolated. All my friends had their children a few years ago so the children are all at school. Great for receiving hand me downs but not so good for socialising with kids!

halfthesize Mon 18-Mar-13 18:09:43

Hello guys great to see some people from Northamptonshire on heregrin
Hope you are feeling better now Crazy
I am also a SAHM to 3 DC DD1 is 21, DS1 is 10 and DS2 is 4.

CrazyGermanInDesborough Mon 11-Mar-13 19:24:16

Well i'm ill in bed with winter vomiting virus. I work ridiculous hours as a support worker for adults with learning disabilities. I have two sons (one is 12 the other 13).
We spent the last 13 years in Rothwell and are now moving to Desborough with my partner (not the boys dad). I have very little family in the country (the rest are in germany) but I do have very good friends. Especially the women at knit and natter church group. They keep me sane when the kids drive me mad and when my work pee me off again.

CorbyBornAndBred Fri 08-Mar-13 17:42:19


I remember that thread Woolly - lots of people said they'd be interested but being such a huge gap in the middle of the county it became a logistical nightmare (IIRC wink )

i too have a different NN for the local boards, have you noticed grin
