SisterAct Mums & Kids Group
The group has been running since 1999 and continues to go from strength to strength. It includes families in various shapes and sizes, and kids ranging in age from new babies to teenage years (there is no age limit). Like the main SisterAct group, we are centred in the Cambridge area but many members travel from surrounding counties. We usually meet on the third or fourth Sunday of the month for the children to play and give the adults a chance to catch up with others. There is a closed email group which we use to arrange events and also provide support and discussion when wanted. Contact (main SA email address) to find out more about future events and how to join the email group.
Over the last year, we’ve played in parks, swum in full-size and paddling pools, built dens in the woods, partied in the summer, worn wellies the rest of the year, slept under canvas, had fun at our friends’ houses, had camp fires, celebrated LGBT history month, explored gorgeous gardens and generally enjoyed spending time together in a relaxed and friendly environment.
Non-parents are welcome too, the group is a great way for those thinking about having children to find out more. Between us we have probably used every approach possible and most, if not all, of us are happy to describe our experiences and what we’ve learned along the way.
