    Hi Marslondon, welcome to Croydon. I'm not sure what part of Croydon you are living but I would highly recommend finding your local children's centre. They usually run weekly playgroups such as Stay and Play or Babyzone. I went to Babyzone at Tunstall Road with my little one - and when she got a little bigger we went to stay and Play at Tunstall Road and Woodside. I found them a great way to get to know other new mums and meet regularly. Babyzone would be perfect for your little girl. As far as I know there are children's centres all around the borough so hopefully there is at least 1 close to you. My daughter has just turned 1 and I am going back to work full time in a couple of weeks :-( but wish you the best of luck meeting new people.

    Hi everyone, I am a new mum in the area of croydon and desperately looking for a new mum or new mums to meet and socialize. My baby girl is nearly 2 months. She was born on the 01-06-14 and I am looking to meet mums with babies around the same age as my baby girl so we can learn together and become friends :-)
    Anyone around?

    It was a great meet-up at Beanies on Wednesday. Thanks for coming ladies!

    With the summer holiday season approaching, I think it will be too big a challenge to arrange a meeting at the moment, so I think I will arrange the next meet-up in September. Hope that's ok.

    In the meantime, I hope you all have a lovely summer and see you soon.

    Hi everyone!

    Just a quick reminder about the meet up tomorrow (Wednesday 16th July) at 10.30am at the Beanies Cafe, Croydon.

    Beanies have kindly given us a play area including toys for the kids - so if you can let me know whether you are coming, it would be really helpful for them in terms of numbers.

    Hope to meet you all tomorrow!

    Hi again!

    Sorry to bombard you with emails, but I am just letting you know that as I haven't had any objections, I am changing the meet-up date to:

    Wednesday 16th July, 10.30am at the Beanies cafe.

    I haven't had many responses (well, i've had one to be honest!), but I hope you can all come. If the weather is bad at least the little ones can have some indoor play time whilst we have a natter.

    See you there!

    Yes, Beanies is a very popular hub for "mum's groups". No probs, will come along on Weds 16th. See you then, thanks for arranging!

    Hi everyone

    Now here's the thing...

    Beanies cafe have come back to me to say that Netmums (whoever they are!) are having a meet-up at the same time on the Tuesday 15th. So, Beanies have suggested that we change our meet-up date to
    Wednesday 16th at 10.30.

    They will put some soft play bits out for the kids (for free) as long as we are prepared to buy some tea/coffee etc.

    So, my question is: who would be free on Wednesday morning?

    I know your all very busy, but it would be really helpful if you would let me know if you can attend so I know what numbers to expect.

    I won't re-arrange the date officially until we know its convenient for the majority.

    Thanks everyone and sorry for any inconvenience.

    Hi Everyone

    The Beanies have offered us a discount on the play floor prices, although they are yet to confirm the amount. I will let you know as soon as poss.

    I hope you can all make it. It would be really helpful if you could let me know if you are coming, so we all know what to expect in terms of turnout.

    Thanks again! speak to you soon.

    Hello everyone

    Hope you are all well and enjoying the sunshine.

    I think as the summer holidays are approaching and the group is growing, we should squeeze in another meet-up, whilst we are all around.

    I'm suggesting Tuesday 15 July for a meet up.

    Please let me know if you are available that day.

    If you are not free, would you let me know of any other day that week (commencing 14 July 2014) that you can make.

    Bye for now..

    Hippychick
