We’ve been around as a local site for the parents of Harpenden and the surrounding areas for over 4 years promoting everything that’s available in the area for children and families, and in that time we have also featured great articles from a variety of contributors and hilarious blogs from our very own mummy blogger that have been a big hit with our followers.  So we’ve decided to expand and share them with parents across the UK and beyond.

For latest updates follow us on Facebook or Twitter. And if you have information, advice, ideas or inspiration you’d like to share with parents across the UK then do get in touch.  We’d love to hear from you.
