From bumps to teens, we have it covered!  This is your one-stop site for everything you need to know about living in Romford with children including children's activities, things to do and other local services such as health, education and party providers & supplies

Whether you have lived in Romford for years or are new to the area, this website will help connect you with great activities for you and your children, help you to discover what's going on in your area and hopefully help to keep the kids busy and entertained. It will also direct you to details of local medical centres, libraries, Children's Centres, fitness clubs, nurseries and schools - and so much more.

Follow us on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram as that's another great way to keep up to date with what's happening locally.

In the meantime, if you run a local business or event that's relevant to children and families I'd love to hear from you and get you listed on the site. 

NEW - you can now add RECOMMENDATIONS for your favourite businesses! Use our category menu or the search bar to find the listing you want to recommend and click the "Add recommendation" button. You'll be asked to register the first time and then you can add recommendations for as many businesses as you like.

Ho! Ho! Ho!

It's that time of year again, and we have been researching all things Christmas related. Most of us don’t want to even think about Christmas until much nearer the time but lots of businesses have been getting in touch and sharing details of their events - some have even had various dates selling out already. We don’t want you to miss out on any of the fun, so we are publishing our list of all that’s happening in the area now, and will continue to add to it as new events are announced.
