Please note that since our local Carluccio’s closed on Christmas Eve 2017, we are currently only doing Thursday coffee mornings at 3 House Club.
WEEKLY COFFEE MORNINGS – Thursdays from 10 am-12 noon – when there is NO themed coffee morning. Please read more below about our themed coffee mornings.
Anya of 3 House Club is doing a special offer for NW8-mums (and you don’t have to be a member of the club!) where mums can spend time in the 3 House Club downstairs cafe and soft play/toys’ area every Thursday morning between 10-12. This a great place to have a coffee when your children get mobile as they can enjoy the soft play and toys while you relax with your coffee.
All coffee mornings are very informal settings. Some weeks there are just a few of us and other weeks plenty. Stay for the whole time or just for a few minutes. Especially if you are new to the area, or are a new mum, everything feels easier once you know a few friendly faces. Just turn up and see who is there.
I will be at coffee mornings when I can and look forward to seeing you!
WEEKLY POSTNATAL SUPPORT GROUP
Psychotherapist Rivka Mennesson, who is running the postnatal depression and anxiety support group sessions with me, and I will hold these WEEKLY (currently alternating between Mondays and Fridays) starting at around 9.30 am. There is no commitment; you come when you can and/or want to. What we talk about is confidential and stays with those present only, there is no judgement, you can bring your child and you are free to just listen or talk. Even if you haven’t been diagnosed with PND, but you feel the need to be in a supportive environment, please come along.
Rivka and I want it to be a safe and supportive space where we can all be ourselves. Please send me an email if you would like to join us and I will give you more details.
We now have our very own NW8-mums Book Club! Two lovely mums have volunteered to organise and run it. Please email me if you would like to join and I will get you in touch with the mums who are organising it. With the new GDPR law in place, I will again assume that you are happy for me to email you and one of the mums directly unless you tell me otherwise.
FREE Coffee Mornings at 3 House Club: Please register to attend via 3 House Club directly so that we have an idea for numbers. You can of course always turn up on the day, but early registration is helpful for us when setting up and for those speakers who bring material.
For those who haven’t yet been to 3 House Club, it is breastfeeding friendly and there are changing facilities. There is also a small soft play area with books and toys. We will be downstairs in the cafe area. All coffee mornings are open to all parents and you are very welcome to bring your child.
- Tuesday 20th November at 8 pm, the lovely Maria is yet again helping me organise a dinner in the area for those who are pregnant. Partners/husbands are welcome. Please email me if you would like to join and I will connect you with Maria. Due to the new GDPR law, I will assume you are happy for me to connect you with her unless you let me know otherwise.
- Thursday 29th November at 10.30-11.45 am: Coach Poornima Nair of Live Authentic did a talk for us last autumn which was so incredibly inspiring and as a result many mums started having sessions with her. They have told me how transformative their sessions are. I still remember many of the things Poornima talked about and cannot wait to start having sessions with her myself. This coffee morning will be in a workshop format.
- Thursday 6th December at 10.30-11.45 am: Join us for mince pies and Christmas music to help us get into the spirit of Christmas. Christmas outfits are always fun!
- Save the Date: Our annual Christmas event will take place on Monday 10th December at 8 pm. All the details will be revealed in the next week or so. Partners/husbands are welcome!
We have many things in the pipeline and we get up to a fair amount of impromptu dinners and other social events, so please be in touch should you like to be on the newsletter email list.
