I'm a new mum with a 7 week old DS. I'm used to working in Central London in quite a stressful job and so am all new to this SAHM stuff. Wondered if there were any other mums in the area who would like to meet up?

Hello I am 33 and have a 3 month old little boy. First baby and loving being a mummy but worked full time in fashion and arts for years so finding the change in lifestyle a bit bewildering. Really keen to meet new mums in CP. There doesn't seem to be much out around the triangle for new mums (unless I'm missing a trick) so if you are keen to get together message me.

Don't know all that much about it, Kangamummy: I assume boys go on to the same as the other Lewisham boys' options like Forest Hill Boys, which is a pretty good school by all accounts.

I'm sorry but I don't know much about baby groups in the area. There are a few, I know: try the church on Perry Hill?

Hi motherinferior. Thanx for your message. Do you know any mother and baby groups in the area? Or other places to meet mums?

Is it a good school???

Where do boys tend to go on to from there?

Which senior school?

motherinferior Thu 05-Oct-06 15:21:10

Yes I am from Catford and yes I know Gordonbrock.

RTKangaMummy Thu 05-Oct-06 15:16:25

Does anyone know Gordonbrock School????????

hannah1984uk Thu 05-Oct-06 15:01:24


Is there anyone here in the Catford area? I moved to Catford just before I had my 17 week old so don't know anyone around here. I don't drive so not that easy for me to get around but would be great to meet up with people. Does anyne know of any mum/baby groups?

Milkmaid, I must appologise for not turning up after all the chat in August. My car has let us down big time and we have been stranded in Beckenham since mid August while it goes back and forth to the garage. I still live in hope that the problem will soon be sorted and we will be mobile again.

Hi Booboobunny, there's a very good NCT mums, babies and toddlers group on Mondays, 10am to 11.30am at the methodist church hall on Bevington road (no religious connections). No need to be an NCT member to come along, I'm not and we've been going every week for the past few months (excluding the summer closure). Its very well structured with a lovely and friendly soft play corner for the 0-6 months old babies. Entry is £1.00 until they are 1 yr old then it goes up to £1.30 !! See you there maybe.

i am in beckenham with a 3 month old bundle of joy. i am feeling a bit abandoned after the initial post-birth rush of friends. any chance i could butt in on your little party??

Twirl Tue 26-Sep-06 22:12:57

Hi 6hourslabour. There are parent/baby/toddler sessions at Dulwich library on a Thursday morning and afternoon; an NCT bumps and babes coffee morning on a Friday 9.30 at St Faiths Church, Red Post Hill; and if you get in touch with the NCT they will put you in touch with a 'tea group' of other mums and babies of a similar age. Hope this helps! I have metup with Milkmaid and Pumpkinpie from this thread so perhaps we can have coffee again soon and you can join us? We all have 3/4 month olds too.

Are we still on for tomorrow? I will be at the Horniman cafe at 11.30 but won't make it to the library.

emismum Sun 27-Aug-06 08:36:55

Hi all. Still hoping to make the singalong on 29th, but may have to settle for just coffee at Horniman, as my dd's breakfast time is getting later and later and we're coming from Beckenham. Suz.

milkmaid1510 Thu 24-Aug-06 18:30:22

bump - just in case there are others out there...

PumpkinPi Mon 21-Aug-06 19:05:14

Thanks Milkmaid. I know where the swimming pool is, so I'll able to find it. I'll try to pop along tomorrow.hopefully see you then.

milkmaid1510 Mon 21-Aug-06 17:30:22

hi pumpkinpi -

the library is on Dartmouth Road...

coming down the hill on London Road (as i assume you are coming from that direction if you live close to the horniman museum,)turn right at Barclays bank.

stay on that side of the road and keep walking until you see no more shops - the last one is the organic food store Provender. keep walking about 30 yards or so - you will pass the closed down swimming pools. the library is just beyond there on the corner of Dartmouth Road and Thorpewood Ave.

to get into the children's section with your pram/stroller, turn the corner and go through the back entrance - ring the bell. =)

i'll be there tomorrow 22nd aug if anyone can make it. otherwise, see you all next week! melinda
