The two busy mums behind Ealing Mums in Business, aka Shelley Henderson and Erin Thomas-Wong, have created a community fair called the Northfields Night Market. Featuring everything from tempting foods to irresistible gifts through to services from local experts, the markets bring the best of Ealing together under one roof! There’s even entertainment and it all happens under cover (so no worries about the rain!).
One half of the “dynmaic duo” as we like to call them at Northfields, Shelley joins us as a guest blogger to tell us more about parenting groups that will help new parents or parents who just moved to Ealing. Over to Shelley…
New parent? 2nd, 3rd, 4th time parent? It actually doesn’t matter, the only thing that matters, is when you have a newborn baby in your arms a new door opens and an old one closes.
The real question is how do you find the new door and not pine over the closed one. Maybe this is why Ealing is such a hot spot for families, we are thankfully full of new doors – places, groups, parks and activities.
Whether you want to do something with your little ones, with your friends or for yourself; you will find it all here in Ealing and the great thing is all these groups have a common goal; to help parents feel less isolated and enrich their lives with new friends, knowledge and support. You don’t even have to look very far before you start hearing, seeing & joining many of the local groups and enjoying Ealing’s many family friendly events. Hopefully I will see you soon at any one of these groups, classes, events and activities.
Here are just a few examples of the groups that exist in the area:
NCT Ealing is more than just antenatal classes. It doesn’t matter if you’re expecting a baby, are a new parent, or have a young family, NCT Ealing connects parents across Ealing including Acton, Greenford, Hanwell, Northolt, Perivale and Southall. The NCT provides post-natal support to mums and dads alike, including coffee groups and can put you in touch with qualified breastfeeding councilors. The NCT Nearly New Sales are an extremely popular way of finding bargains for your family.
