Hi, I'm Kayleigh and I run the Mum's Guide to Hertford webpage and associated social media channels.

I have lived in Hertford with my husband for 9 years now and have two children one aged 7 and 3 , a rescued Romanian street dog and a menagerie of pets.

I have always been so impressed by the range of services and facilities Hertford and local surrounding areas has to offer parents of all ages. From baby yoga, rhyme time, library sessions we've been to our fair share of local classes and activities.

With my eldest it was sometimes difficult to find out up to date information about what was going on and where without vast searches of various local Facebook pages. 

For me classes and activities and local places to go have been invaluable in saving my sanity on days when we just need to leave the house! (I'm sure you've all been there), its helped me to make friends and saved my purse when money has been a bit tight and I've needed something budget-friendly. My husband is the director of Cedars Nature Centre based in Cheshunt which is a small licensed zoo for example. He is also an award winning childrens entertainer "Ranger Stu".

As a previous admin of a local social media mums group (Ware and Hertford mum's) I have seem the real impact these groups can have to enrich peoples lives. The butterflies group for example provides help to those suffering from post natal depression.

The past two years setting up and running Mum's Guide to Hertford have been life changing and i do not say that lightly. I have my position as a work placement co-ordinator for animal sciences in a college to focus purely on Mum's Guide to Hertford as the business grew. We have acheived amazing things in such a short time, with over 65,000 yearly users and over 150,000 page views alongisde 850,000 google impressions. Hundreds of local companies chosing to list with us and nearly 6,000 genuine combined social media followers.

I have also falling in love with blogging since starting Mum's Guide to Hertford and am now regularly invited to blog for numerous Hertfordshire attractions and have placed in the tots 100 blogging chart consistently since August 2020. 

Mums guide to Hertford aims to bring you all the information you need at your fingertips all in one place. Please do feel free to contact me with any feedback for the page or if you need further information about anything you see.

About Mum’s Guide To Ltd

Mum's Guide To Ltd began in 2012 when four mums from Harpenden set-up a website to give local families in a comprehensive, one-stop shop to find all the information they needed about living in the area with children.  The site quickly grew to become the most popular site for Harpenden parents and carers. In 2017 the mums decided to spread their wings by launching Mum’s guide to UK giving parents across the country the opportunity to set up their own local Mum’s Guide To sites.

Our philosophy is quite simple:

  • Each site focuses on a single town and is run by local parentss
  • It covers children of all ages from bumps to teens.
  • It’s as comprehensive as possible - covering activities and things to do, parties, local facilities, services and child-friendly businesses.
  • We are pro-active about seeking out new businesses and keeping the information up-to-date.
  • A basic listing is always free so even the smallest groups and new businesses can be included.
