I am in my mid thirties and I am looking to meet other local Mums from Walton and the surrounding area. Having always worked before I had my son who is now 17 months....... it would be nice to meet up with other like minded mums for a chat and coffee.

If you also find at times you are at a loose end especially, now in the holiday season please drop us a line!
Bye for now Ally

can I hijack a second? sorry!

I'm very vaguely deciding whether to move somewhere further out of London but easy commute and have thought of Hersham. I'd be an older single working mum - any advice on the area, cost of childminders, etc?

To be honest I'm not likely to do it for a couple of years but wanted to start considering the pros and cons now.

Hersham /Walton/ Shepperton are reasonably priced areas to live in Weybridge is more expensive. Biggest advantage of all these areas is you are near to the river Thames for walks etc and only 30 mins out of London with fab train links. We have major shopping town called Kingston and Walton is currently, undergoing a major shopping redevelopment so in summary it does have loads of facilities from shops, nurserys, to gyms etc ... As to child minders etc guess it's like every area. It's a nice area but, having moved around with work in the past I guess all areas are what you make them .......Hope this helps........ Alison

Once again, any bored mums out there who fancy meeting up...Walton, Hersham, Shepperton, Weybridge Areas then drop us a line.

Hi ladies. Am also thinking of moving to Weybrdige. We've found a lovely place but are stuck in SW19 at moment as haven't got offer on our house so can't put offer in on house in Weybrdige <ggggrrrr>.

Anyone want to buy a house in Wimbledon???

Have got DD1 4yrs11m and DD2 7months.

allyden, good to know that there's someone down there if we ever get to move. will contact you in a heartbeat if we ever get down there!

Well, Good luck with the moves I am amazed at the people trying to live in Weybridge .. For facilities and shopping Walton is by far better... Currently, I live between both but always err to Walton its just had a new leisure centre built and is due a new shopping centre shortly......Weybridge for shopping is full of charity shops! Weybridge however, is good for restaurants and it is a nice area but so is Walton and happy - house hunting ...

Once again, there must be a few mums home alone who fancy a meet up who live here already!

allyden Tue 08-Aug-06 19:44:32

Hi since I last posted our plans have changed and we are now moving to Thames Ditton, but it's not a million miles away from Weybridge so I would still like to be counted in when we actually move.
