This month our users have been chatting about Our MN Merton & Wimbledon Book Group, Parking for families in local parks/recreation grounds – what do you think? and Meet-ups with other Merton mums.

We're already two weeks back into the new academic year so hoping you're all getting back into some form of routine. Local hightlights for families over the coming weeks include:

Santus Circus Monday, 18-Sunday, 24 September (Raynes Park);

Odeon Newbies Screening: Victoria and Abdul Wednesday, 20 September (Wimbledon);

Explore Learning 11+ Info Evening Thursday, 21 September (Colliers Wood);

Have a great month, although guaranteed to be a busy one for those of you with school-age children, as you navigate the path of new routines and get to grips with all the school-related admin! With possibly an eye on your nursery and Year 6 aged children moving on and upwards in their academic careers, look out for local schools' open day listings.

We're wondering what's happened to the usual autumnal Indian summer – not much sign of it yet?!

Have a great September whatever the weather!
