Hi! My name’s Deb and I’m a local mum to a boisterous toddler, and housemate to 3 fabulous step-daughters. West Leeds is a fantastic place to raise a family, there is so much going on for babies and children here. Over the past few years I’ve tried many playgroups and classes and have been to a lot of attractions and family events in the area. I’ve been so impressed by what I’ve found and feel genuinely lucky to be raising a family an community that has so much going on.
Before having my daughter I had no idea what there was to do in the area with a baby though. I remember in the first few months of having her thinking ‘What on earth do I do with her today, I need to get out of the house?! Where can I take her and where can I meet other mums in my situation?’ And now she’s started nursery I’m thinking ‘What shall I do with her on our days together? Where can we go altogether, where the older one’s won’t get bored? And what is there to do free because I’m spending money like it’s going out of fashion?’.
I spent a lot of my time online, liking different Facebook pages or using one internet site to find out about my local library and another for my children centre. I just didn’t feel there was one place that had everything I needed for West Leeds. So I decided to create one. Somewhere where everything to do is listed, from playgroups and classes to local days out and special events. Somewhere that other parents and carers (and grandparents) could go to find things to do with their little ones. And so the West Leeds Mumbler website was born!
