Bumper Week at Weston-super-Mum

We are delighted to welcome the 50 or so new members who have joined Weston-super-Mum this week and, phewie, what an active and interesting bunch they are! 

Lucy Frampton has added the "Save our Museum" group, in protest of the threatened closure of our Burlington Street Museum (the one and only museum in Weston) and is continuing to post updates - supporters of the museum will be meeting at there on Weds 17th Feb admist much fanfare: the local press and news channels will be on site.  Please go along if you can to show support and keep our museum where it is!

Natasha Sykes is furious about the state of her local park in Walford Avenue, Worle, and through a discussion dedicated to this subject, "Get our park Fixed!" finds that she is not alone in her wish to improve facilities there.

Everyone's getting excited about the new Water Park promised for June of this year at a sea-front location, while the new inflatable centre due to open in March on the Oldmixon, Bounce!, is still creating much positivity.

Magdelena H is our first member from Poland and she shares with us her new blogs:  and At the top right hand of these blogs, google will translate from Polish into English for you, just click.  And self-confessed History geek, Melanie, has a stunning blog, "Kill them all, God will know his own" all about the French Revolution: it's well-worth a look.

Groups have now been set up for those living in Milton, in Weston Village and in the Oldmixon, so if you live in these areas, please join your respective group and meet others living very close to you.  Also Karen Hoodinott has created a supportive group for all working mums.

Our Friday play date at Central Weston Children's Centre in Meadow St, Weston, was so popular that Health and Safety dictated that we couldn't have squeezed any more parents and children in!  We were also thrilled to see 2 dads at the event.  Another has been arranged for Friday 26th Feb, 1-3pm.

We're collaborating with dad and WsMum member, Shane Dean, to bring you a special event called "Arts and Crafts Afternoon: Design a Logo" at the Purple Sheep Cafe in Hughenden Road on Thurs 25th Feb, 1-5pm.  The cafe and all facilities at the Purple Sheep will be open as usual, so you have a cup of tea while the kids get arty or bounce around on the castle.  Winning entries will receive either a family ticket for Court Farm Country Park or Puxton Park or film passes for the Odeon.   If you are unable to attend the afternoon, you can still bring your child's entry along to any other one of our playdates or email us on

And ...

We've just announced a blog writing competition.  Write a blog about where you like to take the kids in North Somerset for Weston-super-Mum to be published at the Weston Mercury and enter into a draw to win a family ticket to Puxton Park. All entries can be posted to before the closing date of Fri 12th March.  The lucky winner will be picked at random and announced on our site on Mothering Sunday.

DON'T FORGET our Sport's Relief Toddle on March 21st, brainchild of Debbie S, where we will be walking with the children from the Grand Pier to the Seaquarium with the rest of the town.  Our fancy dress theme is superheroes.  Sign up here.

Look out for our exciting March draw in conjunction with Lloyds' Toys on Weston High Street!!

Happy parenting in Weston!! :-)
