My name is Helen and I live in South Leeds with my lively one-year old daughter and our feisty feline rescue cat.
I have just taken over running the *South Leeds Mumbler site, which – for those familiar with Mumbler already – combines the old South East Leeds area and the southern part of the old West Leeds area.
South Leeds is a brilliant place to raise a family. We are lucky to have a huge range of local services, classes and activities for little ones, as well as some amazing parks and green spaces. We’re also well connected, with bus and train routes, motorways and A-roads giving easy access to family attractions and outdoor activities a bit further afield.
I’m excited to get going on updating the South Leeds Mumbler website and as well as sharing local information, I’ll also be blogging about some of my own personal parenting journey.
My aim is to help answer an array of daily parents questions, such as ‘Where can I go with my baby locally to meet other parents? What can I do with my toddler during the school holidays?’ How and where can I access local services for breastfeeding, family and single parents support, mental health services, help with benefits and financial or legal services? What can I do to relax? Which local cafes and restaurants are child friendly?
I hope South Leeds Mumbler will become your one, go-to place to find everything from playgroups and classes to local days out and special events, and perhaps even new friends!
The website is evolving so if there is something you want to see just let me know.
Join us on social too:
I’m sure that there are activities missing so please contact me here if you run a playgroup, class, attraction or event that you would like to be added or if you’re a parent that been to something that you would like to share.
I look forward to meeting you – either online or in person – and hope you find the new website useful.
