I am moving my family to Cambridge from London and know very little people, especially other mummies like myself there. I am a young 32 ;) with a one year old and an 18month old. We are moving near Royston temporarily but would be willing to meet anyone in or around Cambridge. Let me know if you fancy a coffee/prosecco? or if you know of any groups? Meetups? or great toddler baby groups. Im slightly terrified of moving and knowing no-one apart from the in-laws!!
Please also recommend and great places to visit? Swimming classes? Ballet classes? for my toddler not me!!!
Though we are now in The North, I grew up in Cambridge and spent a chunk of summer there this year, rediscovering with my boy (now 5) some of the things I loved doing as a kid in and around Cambridge.
The University museums are great fun and free. Sedgwick Museum for dinosaurs, Arch & Anth for totem poles and canoes, Scott Polar Institute for arctic explorers, Fitzwilliam for Egyptian mummies and knights in armour...
Good trips out round Cambridge include Wandlebury Ring and Wimpole Home Farm. The botanic gardens near the station have a great programme of family activities too.
Don't miss the Mill Road Winter Fair on 2 December (millroadwinterfair.org) - it's a great event with lots of local organisations getting involved.
