International Parents Group – Starts Friday 11 August

International Parents Group

From 11 August, a new parents’ group will be meeting every Friday between 10am and 12pm.

The group welcomes pregnant women, partners and families with young children (infants, toddlers and older children are welcome) to connect and enjoy a relaxed space for families. The group is free, and there is no booking required, but a suggested donation of £2 for refreshments would be really appreciated.
