Hi out there... I'm moving to the Stirling area next week and was wondering if there was anyone out there who might like to meet up for a coffee or a walk in the park sometime.

We are new to the area so don't really know anyone and would love to meet some local mums and children to give us the low don.

Hope to hear from you

Hi Metallicpoo (great name!!).

I grew up in Bridge of Allan, but live in Falkirk now. Thats only about 10 miles from Stirling. All through my Uni days I lived in the town centre. It was fantastic!! The next Scottish Meet-up is in Edinburgh if you fancy coming along??

We sometimes meet for coffee at Stirling Uni too.

That would be great! We're moving to Dunblane so its pretty easy to get to Edinburgh.
My computer is a bit dodgy at the moment and am having to beg the use of other peoples so not on the net as much as usual - but let me know the details of the Edinburgh meet up - I'd love to come along!

My name is Christine and I saw that some of you live in the Falkirk Area. I have recently been appointed as Co-ordinator for a Community Resource Centre over in the Bonnybridge Area of Falkirk and one of my first aims is to start up a Mum and Toddler/Parent Support Group. My experience of these groups hasn't been great, I remember them feeling a bit like an outsider, the core of the group just getting on with it while the new mums watched on a bit nervous and shy. I would like to blow that stereotype out of the water and get together mums who are all new and wanting to make a real success of the group, working on the decor of the room, funding for outings and reading, health eating initiatives. I have a real vision for what it could be and would love if like-minded mums would be interested in joining experiences and skills to build a strong community of parents. As you can probably tell, I am outgoing, a bit mouthy and extremely enthusiastic and hope that through this website and a few other sources I could get together a strong foundation for a group. I am already preparing a funding application for a home-reading initiative where we could get funds for a book loan scheme!!!

If you are interested at all, maybe you could email me on If not, no problem, I understand it may not be very close to where you live as Falkirks a big old place! Thanks for listening to my whitterings anyway.

Best wishes.
Christine Kinnon
