about us

I'm Louise, a local mummy with three small children Grayson who is 6, Ruby 3 and Hallie is almost 2.  I have lived locally all my life, apart from two years in South Africa a while back, growing up in Digswell and now living in Welwyn Garden City. 

As a family we are very busy, always out & about exploring and visiting places.  We have some go to favourites, doesn't every family, but like to find new things to do too.  I have travelled lots, done endless tourist things and explored many a place, but I've realised that we really don't appreciate what's on our own doorstep, and always feel the need to travel further afield to feel like we are exploring.  So I started looking closer to home. But I soon got frustrated with web searches as to what was on locally, where was good to go etc.  There was no definitive sites to find this information.  I came across Mums Guide to Hertford via their Facebook page when looking ironically for something else and the rest as they say is history ........

I am excited to share this site with you and will certainly enjoy updating what's on locally, attending events and visiting activities & attractions both locally and a bit further afield with my children, sharing my reviews with you. 

Please do get in touch if you would like to list your business / classes / events with us, we'd love to welcome you. 

Do also give us a follow on social media - I know you all love a child free zone out on social media every now and again - our pages are Facebook, Twitter, Instagram 



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.
