about us

Hi, I’m Maria and I run the Mum's Guide to Luton website and social media. 

I live in Luton with my husband, our 2-year-old daughter and 3 cats!

I love getting out and about with my family and friends, either to classes and playgroups, local attractions and events or local walks in the park so I hope I’ll have a lot to offer in terms of great things to do in and around Luton. I also love a bit of planning and organisation so am always looking for what's on in the area and finding new places to visit.

As a first-time mum, clueless about where to find any local play groups or places to take my daughter as she was getting more mobile, I found the Mum's Guide to Hitchin Instagram and Facebook pages a lifesaver. So when we moved back to Luton in 2023 I wanted to be able to give something back, and hopefully be able to help others struggling to find things to do with the little ones! I know how important it is, particularly as a new parent to find things to do, not only for your children, but for you to socialise too.

My goal is to provide a website and social pages packed with so much local information for families, that you really don’t need to look elsewhere. I know how busy life is as a parent, and I’m hoping to take the hard work out of finding great things for you to do for quality family time together.

If you have any recommendations for the website or run a local business and would like to be involved in the site, please do get in touch through my social media channels or e-mail [email protected].

And do say hi if you see us out and about!

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.
