Winter Draws to a Close

Is it really only two weeks since the last post?  If so, two weeks is a long time in the world of Weston-super-Mum. 

More mums, dads, aunties and grandparents have been getting involved in the Community and we are almost 100 strong.  Discussions and groups are multiplying: Made in Milla asks us about Child Trust Funds and Lady Martina informs us of a new play centre, Bounce, that will soon open in the Oldmixon.  Our chat room is now open, the hours of 8-10pm being reserved for general chat each evening, a natter en masse if you like. 

We've had a play-date at the Central Weston Children's Centre, Meadow Street, where it was great to see new faces and some, it has to be said, adorable babies. We will be meeting there again this Friday 12th 1-3pm.  It's a comfortable and safe area for all those with children under 5 and you are most welcome to join us.

We launced our Logo Competition in the Weston Mercury this week (page 18) and we have secured prizes from some of the top attractions in the area so it's getting very exciting.  Entries designed by the budding young artists in the family can be emailed to us at  We'll also be organising some arts and crafts play-dates based around our Logo Design very soon - we'll let you know.

Debbie S is busy rounding up entrants for our mile walk for Sports Relief, for which we'll be promenading the seafront in (non-obligatory) super-Hero costumes on March 21st, 2pm, joining other entrants from Weston-super-Mare at the Grand Pier and then heading down to the Seaquarium on our toddle.  Join us if you can and help raise money for this worthwhile charity; sponsorship forms can be downloaded and attendance confirmed on our discussion board. 

Karen B has written a humourous and heart-warming blogpost for Weston-super-Mum at the Weston Mercury about how her gorgeous baby girl has helped her to fall in love once more with her home town. 

That just leaves me to tell you about upcoming events ('What's On' downloadable posters and leaflets are now available on the discussion board).
