When meeting up take sensible precautions. Meet in a public place and let others know where you are going. You can also meet mums on your local site here.

I have a 14 month old daughter and live in Essex. Me and my husband moved into the area from London 18 months ago and haven't had the opportunity to make any new friends.
Would be great to hear from any local mums who would like to meet up for a coffee and a gossip and for our kids to play!!!
Please get in touch!!!

Mumatuks Mon 06-Mar-06 14:16:32

oh you just missed our last meetup (some of us) There are quite a few of us... where are you?

tahira Mon 06-Mar-06 14:47:06

I'm in Hornchurch-problem is I don't drive!!!

Mumatuks Mon 06-Mar-06 18:10:09

I'm just over the other side of Brentwood road, so I qualify as Romford, but I know Hornchurch quite well.

Hi Mumatuks
forgive my ignorance but how does a meetup work? where do you usually meet and do the kids get a chance to meet up and play aswell or is it just for mums?

Mumatuks Tue 07-Mar-06 07:49:38

Hi Tahira,
Our last meet up was at Kidspace in The Brewery shopping centre. All of us have quite young babies, but I know there is a mum with a little boy about the same age as your DD.
If you keep an eye out on the Meet Up threads, as I think we were planning on meeting again in a few weeks time.

Hi Mumatuks
That sounds like a lot of fun. Would be great if you could keep me informed as to when your next meet up will be.

Hi, I have a 23 month old boy and Im 21 weeks pregnant with my second baby. Just found out yesterday that Im having a girl, so Im well chuffed, I can start buying lots of pink stuff. I live in Canvey Island, and I don't have any friends who are pregnant or who have kids, so it would be nice to hear from any expectant Mums in the local area so we can talk about pregnancy things and to meet up and have a chat. Hope to here from you. H

We've just moved into our new place in Westcliff and I'm struggling to find good information about things to do as a parent in Westcliff, so I decided to set up a forum for us all. I'm hoping that as it grows we can exchange information and advice, as well as everyday chatter and nonsense.

At the moment it's pretty small, so I'd appreciate you coming over and having a look. It's easy to post, and you can drop me a line if you need any help. My username over there is weezypops, but as I'm one of the few people who has posted anything it should be easy enough to find!

I'd like the website to include parents (including Dads, if they're interested), future parents, Grandparents... anyone and everyone really, so please please send the link to anyone you think might fit the bill, even if you're not interested yourself. It's going to take a while to grow, but I hope we can get there.

The link is:

I hope you'll join me.
