Hi I'm hoping to move to Ascot in a couple of weeks time from SW London. Just wondering if there are any mummies out there who might be up for meeting up? I'm a relatively new mum, I have a 6 month old boy, Jonah. I'm feeling rather nervous about making the move as have a really strong NCT support network here, but don't know anyone in Ascot! We're moving to be closer to our families in Maidenhead - but that's not the same as making some good friends! Am also interested in any mum/baby groups and also baby swimming. Thanks!
If you drive and have a car to use then you should find it ok to find local groups. Give each one a try and see if you like any of them. It always takes me ages to find a toddler group which I like (ended up going to one in Bagshot for many years, as they were friendly towards me).
Anyway, enough info from me, don't want to hog your message thread.
Come on other Ascot local's - suggest good places to go, plus perhaps meet up with LAMMM
Hi LAMMM. I also recently moved to Ascot from Twickenham, where I had a great NCT group too! Have been looking for local mums to meet up with, especially as I am due with no.2 in Dec and will be on mat leave from nov and there are no refresher NCT classes locally. I know the area quite well as my family originate from Ascot but as you say its good to know local mums. Let me know if you are interested in meeting up for a coffee?
Hi. Would love to meet up - but am going back to work in mid Oct, boo! Sort of looking forwards to it, sort of dreading it. Have been to some playgroups which has been vg for meeting other mums. Main difference between that and an NCT group is that at NCT the babies are about the same age, whereas at the playgroups a lot of the kids are running about, and J at 10m is a bit little for that at the mo! Are you around in the week? I go to the Friday stay and play at All Souls in S Ascot if you fancy, I think it starts at 9.30 til 11, but I never make it that early!
