about us

Hey! I'm Lisa and I moved to Godmanchester in the middle of lockdown in February 2021. Originally living in Hertfordshire, we upped and moved in the middle of a pandemic to somewhere we knew nothing and nobody. I knew how important it would be to get involved in the local community of Godmanchester and Huntingdon, and as I was discovering everything as a complete newbie, I thought it would be the perfect time to also set up the Mum's guide to Huntingdon site. 

I have two boys who are aged 8 and 4 and I know how important it is to have information to hand on everything family-related. Whether it is local classes, the events that are happening, or the nearest pharmacy where you can get Calpol in the middle of the night! There are a gazillion Facebook groups where parents are constantly asking 'where is this' and 'what is on here and then', and so it seemed like a perfect opportunity to take all of that information and condense it in one place. So here I am. Serving you with all the information I can find on the local area. 

We absolutely love living here in Godmanchester and are enjoying exploring everything there is around us. If you see me around town, feel free to say hello! I'm mostly found walking the dog round the Meadow and Nature Reserve, nipping to the shops in town, or eating cake somewhere! 

Feel free to get in touch about anything you want to see on here, any feedback, or if you are new to town, any questions you might have! You can also find me over on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter!

Take care,

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 parents.
  • 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.
