Who are we?
We’re a group of individuals who are passionate about supporting young families as they grow up in the challenging times we live in. We’ve all benefitted from the care and support of other parents who have been through the ups and downs of parenting ahead of us. And we’re really keen to share not just what we have learned from others but a combined 72 years of experience as real mums and dads.
We’re also passionate about Bury St Edmunds and all have some connection with the Westgate District or the local School. We’re focusing on the School to start with because, that’s where many of the families are.
WE'RE HERE FOR YOU...
