Dorsetmums Meetup

Many Mums say they sometimes get lonely even though the day is packed full of things to do.  It's always nice to stop now and again and have an adult conversation about something other than nappies and tantrums!

Dorsetmums would love to be able to bring families together and honestly believe life can be more enjoyable when you have a good friend at your side.  Some mums lose friends when family life takes up too much time and it's always more difficult to make special friends the older you get.  Taking the step to go to a new group or a planned get together can be so daunting but you have nothing to lose and may find someone you click with straight away.  If you are nervous then remember that you're probably not the only one and children are always a great conversation starter.

We love arranging Dorsetmum Meetups around the County but please do let us know if you would like to organise your own.  We will happily find a coffee shop or soft play near you and advertise the date and time so if you are looking to make some new friends then please Contact Us.  

Tuesday 27th June 2017 - From Noon

Would you like to join Dorsetmums for Afternoon Tea?

The Cliff House Hotel in Bournmouth are welcoming Dorsetmums and their children (Dads, Granparents ect you are of course invited too, even Mums to be) to their lovely garden for some relaxing fun in the sunshine.  Please feel free to bring some garden toys to keep the children entertained although I will endevour to bring anything suitable I may have (which isn't much other than cars).

The Hotel have kindly offered us a special price of £12 per person for the Afternoon Tea which consists of tea/coffee, sandwiches, cakes and scones but you are of course more than welcome to come and join us just for a cuppa if you wish.  If you would like the Afternoon Tea however we ask that you contact the Hotel beforehand to book so that they know how many scones to bake for the day.

So grab your friends or come alone and join us for a nice couple of hours eating cake!

To book, please call 01202 424701.

Good to know..............

There is a car park and free car parking on the road.

Come and join us and other local families for a fun trip to the Alpine Park at Snowtrax!  They now have an amazing new pirate ship which seems to be a big hit so far.  Plus there's forts, ground level trampolines and plenty to climb and jump from.

We'll be meeting at 11am and plan to have a picnic around Noon so please feel free to join us.  Just in case I'm unable to grab a table please also bring a picnic blanket.

Everyone is welcome, Mums, Dads, Kids, Babies and Granparents.  Tell your friends and join us for a play!

Snowtrax have very kindly offered us a reduced rate of £2.50 per child. Adults are £1.95 which is redeemable as a bar voucher so you can grab a drink while you're there.  Please let them know you are with Dorsetmums when you get there.

Sunday 9th July 2017 - From Noon

It's National Teddy Bear Picnic Day! Well, it's actually on the Monday but when I asked Dorsetmums the question on whether we should do it on the Sunday or the Monday, the Sunday won.

So grab the kids, a picnic, some gardens games and of course the teddy bears and join us for a big family picnic.

Hamworthy Park is a fantastic place to hold it and if you've never been before then they have a fab play park, paddling pool and cafe for any food or drink you may need.

We have joined the Friends of Hamworthy Park on this event so hopefully there wil be a great gathering (and no rain) on the day.

Any questions, please just Contact Us.

Please note, parking charges apply at the park however road parking is still free (but don't blame me if they council changes this before July!)

Address - Hamworthy Park (exact location within the park TBC nearer the time), Lulworth Avenue, Poole, BH15 4DH
