We have recently moved back to the area and I would really like to meet people. I have a 10 week old and an almost 3 year old ( who is in pre-school half days).
Can anyone recommend friendly baby/ toddler groups, or other good activities so I can get out and about a bit more, and with a purpose, and speak to some adults - even if it is about our kids - between the hours of 7-7?!
I live in central Cheltenham but can travel.

Check out 'About Baby Cotswolds' magazine you can pick up a copy in Cafw Boho - it's got loads of listing of baby groups in Cheltenham. The one i liked the best was nursery ryhmes class at Cheltenham libary on Tues and Thursday morning.

Hope you are settling back in ok and have found some good groups to go to.
We're moving to Cheltenham in the New Year - in the process of buying a house in Leckhampton but it's taking forever. I have been googling baby/toddler groups in Leckhampton and there seem to be quite a few.

I'm really looking forward to getting there and making some new friends!

I have been in cheltenham for about 6 months. We are currently buying in warden hill.
I have been gently reminded that a diet of day time tv, and internet shopping isnt so healthy!
I am also looking for decent friendly groups to take my 4 month old to.
Failing that, DOES ANYONE LOCAL DRINK COFFEE?? Maybe we could all do a cafe meet up, then tackle groups together? They are always so much nicer to go to if you already know at least one person!

I just PMd you too. Gardener's Lane Baby Drop-In on a Weds morning seems friendly.

As Vickles said, Emmanuel is lovely. I am a newbie but find it relaxed and the kids LOVE it toosmile
