New/expectant parents

Are you a new/expectant parent, or parent to a baby, and living in Haslingfield or Harlton? It would be great to make friends and be able to support each other, and especially so in the current situation. We may not be able to meet in person for a little while yet, but we can still do a video cuppa (and cake!) and of course be at the end of the phone. If this sounds like something you’d be interested in, please email Alison for more information: newparents.haslingfield@gmail.com.
