You may have read something about the relaunch of the MN Local sites. Well, this is it. The Tech team have been working flat out to get everything looking so fantastic.

We have a shiny new Things To Do section, where you can add a listing of local activities and events.

On The High Street is the place to add local businesses - if you know someone in the area who might be interested, do let them know that they can add their company details to the Mumsnet Fife site, completely free of charge.

Those who offer services in the area can also add their details free of charge.

These businesses can be reviewed by local MNetters, giving recommendations to other parents in the area.

Meet ups in the local areas will be organised by Local Ambassadors -You would get your own page to put meet-up details on the Fife homepage and would just need to organise occasional get-togethers (preferably monthly) in your area.

We are working to organise discounts and freebies for our ambassadors with our advertisers (when this is up and running) and other local businesses and you would also get a MN card which you could use to negotiate your own special treats (ie free coffees for you at the venue you use for your meet up or free entry to a local attraction in return for a kind review on the site).

The FB page will be up and running soon, as will the Twitter account

Hello Claire, and welcome to Mumsnet.

It has been a bit quiet on here, but we hope to get up and running soon.

The Things To Do section is here, but it needs a bit of filling up. We are aiming to do that over the coming weeks. If you know of anything good, please share.

How old is your son, and what kind of things are you looking for?

Hi everyone,

hope everyone is well and not finding the cold weather too depressing! Fingers crossed we get some snow soon, can always think of plenty of things to do with the kids in the snow - as long as it doesn't last too long! x

Hi CM. I thought we were in for some proper snow yesterday, but it just snowed all day and came to nothing. The kids were disappointed.

It looks like there is more snow on the hills, so might head up there at the weekend with a sledge.

Anyone know a good place to take the kids sledging?

How you doing, Carnoustiemum? Do you guys have more snow that we do in Dundee? We had a bit yesterday morning but just hard frost at the moment.

not much snow here sad been snowing off and on but so far it's not lying. Enough snow for a snow angel and a snow man would be appreciated!! Fingers crossed for tonight xx

We headed up to Crieff today to seek some snow for sledging. It wasn't really deep, but enough for an hour of fun.

Noticing that the tyres that we hvae on the car are useless in snow, and planning to buy winter tyres for next year. Everyone has them in Germany, and they make a huge difference. We could hardly get out of the driveway this morning.
