Join us for our weekly meet-ups and find likeminded women who happen to be mothers
What can you expect from a Motherhood Society Meet-up?
Earlier in the year, we moved into our new venue at Leckhampton Village Hall and switched to a weekly Tuesday morning session at a slightly earlier time (9:30 – 11:30) and we are loving being back to providing a safe space filled with coffee and cake, toddler toys and snacks, supportive chat and solidarity.
So, if you come and hang out on a Tuesday – what can you expect?
Plenty of space for chatting, playing, rolling, running, crafting and napping (babies usually!) Leckhampton Village Hall is a great venue with heaps of room, excellent facilities and plenty of free parking. Pram and wheelchair accessible, it is easy and stress-free to visit us.
We meet every Tuesday morning, once a month at John Lewis on Cheltenham Highstreet where we host a coffee morning specifically aimed at new mothers with babes in arms.
Our sessions run 9:30 – 11:30 but feel free to come and go as you please. Running late? No problem. Need to leave early for nap time? Go ahead! We are very relaxed and there is no cut off for hot drinks or homemade cake.
We want to make our meet-ups affordable while still providing you with the best so £4/family allows us to bake cake, brew tea and coffee and provide you will a safe, secure and fun space to hang-out.
Loose leaf tea, freshly brewed coffee, hot chocolate, herbal teas – no dirty dishwasher tea or instant coffee here! We also get busy in the kitchen and provide homemade cake every week ranging from brownies to sponges, tiffin to scones with clotted cream and jam. We also provide snacks for your toddlers (the quietest part of the morning) including things like fruit, crackers and crudities.
We can cater for any age with toys, crafts and plenty of space to run off some energy so you’re welcome with your tiny babies, toddlers and your bigger ones.
Leckhampton Village Hall
09:30 – 11:30
The hall was previously occupied by Leckhampton Playgroup, but after Covid hit last year, they found that sadly there was no one to take on the running of the group. Leckhampton Playgroup has always been organised and run by groups of parents. They have provided an excellent and really popular space for parents to bring their little ones for a long, long time (rumour has it that the group has been going for around 50 years!!)
So, to keep the playgroup sessions going, will be taking over Leckhampton Playgroup so we can continue to provide this much-loved group. Our focus will be, as it always has, on women and mothers, in a safe and welcoming space. This is not the end of Leckhampton Playgroup, but the start of a new chapter.
