I've just moved to the Winchester area with DH & our very busy 22 month DS.

I've found a few activities for DS, but am keen to make some new friends for both of us and to get involved with lots of activities. Otherwise, I'm going to go nuts if generally the only people I speak to during the day are DS, old ladies smiling at DS and shop staff grin

Looking forward to hearing from all you lovely ladies!

Hi missingwine, I'm also in the area. Moved to Winch when I was just finishing my first mat leave (good timing, hey!) but am now on my second so just starting to get to grips with some of the many parent and child activities on offer.

I have DS 26 months and DD 10 weeks - so still in the newborn dazed and confused stage but getting there!

Hope you're liking Winch so far. I think it's a lovely place to live and bring up children - and the old ladies and shop assistants are friendly <been there emoticon> grin.

Hi I'm just outside Winchester. It is my 'hood, as it were.grin

Have you been to Marwell yet re activities? I would definitely recommend getting an annual pass.
There's the Adventure Barn nearby.

I'd be up for a meet-up.

I moved to Winchester 2yrs ago to get my boys into St Bedes, after successful submissions, we're now moving address and our recently renovated house is up for rent - great for school admissions and wondered if this is a good place to include a link? St Bedes is a wonderful school where my boys (now 6&8) are very happy. Please DM me if you would like to know more, Cat
