Hello, we are thinking of moving to Liskeard. Any mums there? Any good baby groups/ music clubs? My LO is 9 months old. Thanks!

Hi everyone, me and my partner are hopefully moving to Liskeard in May with our lo who will be 18 months old. We are coming all the way from Essex as my mum lives in Boscastle but can imagine its going to be very different! can anyone give me some advice or share their experiences with me regarding meeting people, toddler groups, nursery's etc. i will know no one and would like to get an idea of mum groups/social activities for us and our lo. Any advice would be much appreciated. Thank you.x

I have a daughter at the school and it is really good. The village has lots going on, and play group is good but only operates during school term which is limiting if you work.

Hi there, I've just had an offer accepted on a house near Upton Cross. If all goes smoothly we hope to be moving down there in a couple of months. I have a 3.5 year old and 5 month old. Can anyone recommend schools, preschools, music/dance groups?

Hi all,

I know this thread is getting on a bit, but I'm really pleased to see there have been some fairly recent posts.

I live in Liskeard, and have done on and off for years. However, most of my friends are School/Uni friends (live away), or NCT/Active birth friends (live in Plymouth or similar), and I'd really like to have a local friendship circle.

I have two children, aged 4 and 17 (!), and work 3 or 4 days a week. I love my job, and although it's very sociable, it doesn't really allow for friendships outside of work.

Looking for like minded people who'd be up for meeting for coffee, drinks, dog walks, beach trips etc. Who knows, maybe even gym buddies, book club etc.

Does anyone fancy linking/meeting up?

Hi all,

This thread is really old but I just happened back upon it and noticed some new posts - hello! Roamingkiwi, you will be nearby to me so do PM me if you read this . lkane0 I really feel this is my home although I do miss some things from where I lived before. I got out as much as I could to meet people and that really helped. Also running a business from home has meant I was too busy to be lonely at the beginning. I like Seasons cafe in Liskeard the best, and Cafe Fleur in Looe.

Hi. We are moving to Liskeard in 2 weeks from Chesham. Wondering how you have all managed and if you are settled? Also where has the best coffee?

Hi girls, I'm also planning a move to Cornwall! Am reading threads to try to make the excitement bigger than the nerves, and this is helping :0) I wanted to get on this thread early doors, so I can meet up with some of you lovely MNers when we move down. We're moving to St. Austell at the start of January...

Hi sorry not been on for awhile..I agree sounds like a good idea too smile

berkotopsy Fri 20-Apr-12 07:15:39

Yep, that's a good idea.

hanbee Tue 17-Apr-12 16:07:00

Oooggs, lilypink and berkotopsy perhaps we should all meet and then Mavis can meet us all when she moves down?

Missmaviscruet - good news. St Germans supposed to be lovely. A change of season, some sun, and toddler group success have indeed made everything down here seem all lovely. If you can move in the spring you'll be laughing.

lilypink2 Sun 25-Mar-12 19:46:27

St Germans is not too far from me either!

Hi crazycatlady, sorry only just saw this post. I think if you move at the right time of year you will immediately love it here. We moved at the end of October! So, not the right time, as it has rained at some point almost every day - at least that's been my perception! But I can totally see it will be fab come the spring. And it's still nice even in the rain. It's been a bit of a slow process meeting other mums. We moved from somewhere where we had lots of friends and NCT buddies and I miss them! But ask me again in 6 months time and I'm sure progress will have been made. Good luck! smile

Hi berkotopsy, just come across your old thread and wondered how you found the move and how you are settling in? We are moving from the south east to Cornwall next year (Wadebridge probably) so would love to hear how you've found it.

berkotopsy Sun 13-Nov-11 20:22:14

Moved to Liskeard! smile
We are now here, so if anyone'd like to meet up, please post!

berkotopsy Sun 14-Aug-11 20:45:47

Yes, thingamajig, you guessed it! We are in Berkhamsted. Fleeing from the ridiculous house prices up here, and wanting to be nearer family. It's funny you say that about Liskeard as we got that feeling about it when we first went there. We're coming down soon, so we'll have a good look around the villages, although our current idea might be to live in Liskeard until we suss out the area properly.

thingamajig Sat 30-Jul-11 22:12:36

berkotopsy, I am guessing that you are from Berkhamsted. Liskeard is a bit like Berko was 20 years ago before the High Street got all posh. A good pub? The Crooked Inn is good, but a bit far from Liskeard itself. I would second that the villages around Liskeard are lovely, either in Looe direction or St Cleer way, some have lovely baby/toddler groups, and since you def need a car to live round here, you can do the rounds - someone else has posted the FIS link.

berkotopsy Thu 14-Jul-11 21:45:26

Recommendations noted on the giant mental Moving to Cornwall list, thanks! Yep would be great to meet up when we are down smile

Cornwall (don't know where exactly) was on TV this morning, pining to get down there. I have just gone back to work commuting into London 3 days a week, so it's even worse. I cannot wait to stop that!

hanbee Tue 12-Jul-11 19:31:54

Must admit I haven't been out much to pubs so snorkmaiden will probably be your best bet here! We have eaten at The Hayloft which is on the A38 about 3 miles from liskeard with the children. It was real good and I would def recommend it. Other than that Seasons cafe in liskeard is good as is Cafe Fleur in Looe (owner gave me a glass if water as soon as she saw me bfing and this is the only place this has ever happened to me).

When you move down pm me, we could perhaps meet up?
