Hi there,
I didn't think there were many fellow Barnsleyites on here, I've lurked on Mumsnet for around 2 yeras but never posted until the other night.
Deli, I think there is a mother and toddler at that church (flashy new one) up Huddersfield Rd on Monday and tuesday afternoons. But so far am too chicken to go also its a long walk for me
There's toddler groups in Ardsley and at St Peters Church on Doncaster Rd but they are in the mornings (boo!).
Bye then!

Hi - glad to see I'm not the only one from Barnsley on this thing! I'm 22 weeks with first baby and just wondering if there are any maternity/post-natal clubs/classes in the area? I know they do a mothers & toddlers group at the new Salvation Army in Hoyland & also there's one at The Bluebell Inn (playmania) but I don't know what they're like. :-)

oops, sorry... meant antenatal!!
