New group launched for Bradford mums and dads
8:00am Sunday 8th September 2013 in News
NCT Bradford & Airedale branch is launching a regular Bumps & Babies group for expectant mums and dads.
The group will run every Tuesday from 11.30 am to 1pm at the Scout HQ in Albert Crescent, Queensbury starting on September 24.
Bumps & Babies groups are about relaxed and informal get-togethers, in community venues with enough room for buggies, babies and a close circle of parents, says Sarah Turner, NCT Bradford and Airedale Branch Coordinator.
She added: "Having a baby is an amazing experience but it can also be quite isolating.
"Coming to this group gives you a reason to get out of the house and socialise with people in your local area who can understand what you’re going through.
"We’re open to everybody and are always looking for new mums and dads to join.”
The branch offers a range of services and activities for local parents including Nearly New Sales, which are held twice a year.
The next one is Saturday, October 19 from 11am to 1pm at St Peter’s Church, Moorhead Lane, Shipley.
The new Queensbury group builds on the success of the long established Saltaire Bumps & Babies group still held every Thursday from 10.30am to 12.30pm at Saltaire Methodist Church.
