I'm moving to Guiseley from London with my partner and will be up in Leeds in the next few weeks. I'm 25 with 2 boys aged 2 and 9 weeks. I will not know anyone or the area and would like to meet friends for myself and my boys. If anyone is interested in getting in touch - please do so.

Also if anyone knows of any good toddler groups, softplay, parks etc please do tell me about it.

Hello! I'm not in Guiseley but Adel, close enough by to meet up, and I'm also working part-time hours over the next few weeks. I have a ds aged 2 (2 tomorrow!). We have a good few MNers in North Leeds, so let's hope we can have a nice meet-up. Best of luck with your move.

Hi there, we haven't been 'up north' for very long ourselves. I'm 26 and have 2 children aged 2 and 10mths. We're about 10 mins from Guiseley so would be happy to point you in the direction of parks etc. .

Happy Birthday Junior Trib from Junior ThisTime xxx

Hope you have had a great day together the three of you

Thank you ThisTime! Ds has had a lovely day in Harrogate, I have had 'fun' chasing him around Betty's ceaselessly for hours on end.

Which makes me think LizaM needs a Betty's trip at some point to introduce her to some of the fine Yorkshire culture (cakes) that we have to offer.

ChorusLine Fri 22-Jun-07 20:28:52

Yes LizaM defintely does! Although have to confess i have never actually sat in Bettys!

Good Luck with the move LizaM

tribpot Sat 23-Jun-07 20:46:35

hazy - no, ThisTime (ChorusLine) was in charge of the people going to the wrong car park, although you might have spoken to me when you turned up at the right car park?

hazygirl Sat 23-Jun-07 20:47:43

filthymindedvixen Sat 23-Jun-07 20:48:42

if you come to harrogate to bettys and there's cake involved, just give me the word!

tribpot Sat 23-Jun-07 20:49:21

Yes, my ds was in the buggy, my dh was whizzing around on his wheelchair nearby I think!

hazygirl Sat 23-Jun-07 21:11:12

yes i do remember i think do you have a girl or boy

hazygirl Sun 24-Jun-07 17:23:56

hi tribpot i hope you didnt mind me asking if you have a boy or girl, i have a two year old grandaughter,you may remember her on the walk she had two brollys and did the whole mile on foot refusins to go in pushchair, she has just had an operation to take half a kidney out to stop it functioning so she is a bit behind but hopefully will catch up

LizaM Sun 24-Jun-07 19:20:34

Glad to know there are a few mums in and around the area.

By the way... what is Betty's?

bettythebuilder Sun 24-Jun-07 19:42:57

I'm also in Harrogate, btw (used to live in Guiseley) so give me a yell if there are plans afoot to visit Betty's!

tribpot Sun 24-Jun-07 19:54:42

hazy - no probs, and I did indeed speak to you on the walk, I have a little boy. Your granddaughter did extra specially well to walk!

daisyboo Sun 24-Jun-07 20:01:19

Hi LizaM...I'm another Leeds mum, with a 5 year old DS ad a three week old DD. I've been here for a couple of years, but cos i was working full time haven't met that many people myself. I'm North Leeds, but 10-15 mins around the ring road from Guiseley. There are a few other ladies I know of on my side of town as well and we were thinking about organising a Leeds meet-up. There's loads of us isn't there?

There's a Yorkshire Meet-up thread somewhere as well....trying to organise something for the first week of the holidays.

Good Luck with the move!

Just wondering if anyone knows someone looking for quality accommodation in Guiseley - I have a double to rent out in my own home for £370.00 PCM including bills - nice quiet area & it only takes 5 minutes to walk to the train station & then 12 minutes to the center of Leeds
I look forward to hearing from you
Kind regards Chris
