Hi i Have just moved to Preston from Brighton and do not know anyone here. I would like to know where i can take my 19 month old daughter, if there are any good classes etc. Need to make some friends! I am 23 married and Live in Deepdale.
Any ideas?? (I also feel a little isolated.)

There is a great music group called Tunies held at the church hall on Victoria Road. there are 3 sessions on a Thurs morning and i have just started with my 20 month old ds at the 10.30 session. Would really recommend it.

Hi, i know what you mean by isolated. I live in Garstang, and very short of friends with children, all my friends are busy at university, and it gets a bit wierd sometimes trying to have a normal life, without other mums to talk to. I dont go to any baby groups, but my son (he's two and a half) goes to nurseries, but theres very little chance of making friends there, and theyre all a lot older than me. Anyway, when you want to talk, or pass time, theres always plenty of people on here. Hey, at least your near Deepdale retail park, i have to travel 20 mins to get there! grin

I've recently moved to Preston too, live just next to Deepdale. My daughter is almost 1. Let me know if you want to get together to go to a class or swimming or even a cuppa!
