Welcome!!! Central tunbridge wells or on the outskirts?
I am in Rusthall with 2 dds but they are older, 5 and 8.
Theres a vibrant toddler group at St Johns church, although I hated all the parents turning thier backs whilst Herbert battered Phillip but others seem to love it....give it a gop see what you think.
Pick up a copy of the grapevine as it has all the local nurserys/playgroups listed.
There is at the sports centre twice a week
a toddler type gym where they have mats and a bouncy castle and things for your toddler to do whilst you mingle with the other mums.
Theres lots of jo jingles/hop skip and jump type activitys around...see the gravevine for this.
Get your dds name on the swimming lesson list if you want her to start when shes 4/5.
Out of town there is a plastic ball place...erm...Runaround in frant 01892 750070 i think they do toddler mornings, as do planet carnival
there is toddler time at all the librarys too HTH
hi we are in Twells too, which part are you moving to? I have a dd 9months and can recommend the st johns toddler group very freindly. we also go to a music class once a week and another toddler group. loads to do. also, there is an active NCT in T wells, although I am not involved apart from going to Nearly new sales (which are fab), I hear theres lots of coffee groups and other stuff going on if thats your thing.
this website is also good
www.netmums.com (might be co.uk - I'll check)
it has local meet a mum pages and lists of classes and groups. I have met several freinds through it and would recommend a look.
HI Wilkojones good luck with the move! we are planing on moving down there from S London in the next 6 months.. I grew up there and now feel the draw back, having a 3 yr old and another due this October. When I go back to visit my parents I'm surprised by the number of 'young' families.. it seems to ahve all you need in a nie compact (and beautiful) place.
Upper Grs Rd is great and central, you'll be able to walk everywhere really easily.
Plus I've heard TW gets the most sunshine in the south east! hoorah. I'll keep an eye out for posts from you as we get nearer our move down.
Hi! I stumbled across this discussion and it made me want to join the site! Im moving up to Tunbridge wells from Brighton with my partner and 7 month old Alice in a few weeks and can't wait to get involved in baby/toddler groups. I think the area we are moving to is called Hawkenbury and Im stuggling to find ut what goes on online. Does anybody know if there is much round this way, or if it would be easy to get to some of the places already mentioned from there?
Hi, Im also from Tunbridge wells and have 2year old boy, and 3 months old baby boy born in november. Would you like to meet sometimes? Im Slovak and husband is from South Africa. Have a lovely day Marta
Hi Liz and Marta, there are so many things going on in TW. It would be great if you can get hold of The grapevine, it's a magazine with info about playgroups, lessons of all sorts for little ones, etc. You could get one at the library. My DD (dear daughter) is 2 and my DS (dear son) is 3 months. We could meet at some of the playgroups sometime, what days in the morning are you free?
We are moving this weekend to Tunbridge Wells central area, its called the village area not far from the station, we dont know a sole, hoping to find something for our two girls to do over the next two weeks of the summer hols, we have a 3 year old DD (thanks for that, I didnt know what that meant either!) and a 1 year old DD, they love to be out and about and at play groups, and so does their mum!
Does anyone know if there are any coffee morning/playgroups or activities that we could do over the next two weeks of the summer holidays?
The other thing we'd love to find is a good place for lunch where the kids are welcome and they don't mind lots of mess?
Hi Ginajacques I just wondered how you got on with your move and how you're finding TW life? I'll be moving down with my other half and two boys in the next few months and a little scared too we currently live in Southwark near borough market and I'm a little sad about leaving... But excited for a new adventure. I hope you've met some nice people and enjoying your new life there!
