What is the aim of Hampstead Mums?

The aim is to connect parents and businesses in the Hampstead area (Belsize Park, South End Green, Swiss Cottage, Primrose Hill). We are doing this by organising events (talks hosted by parents and local businesses), playdates, birth clubs, single parents groups etc.

We are committing to keep this group non-monetised (ie no cash for ourselves). We started accepting advertisements as local businesses wanted it - all revenue from advertising goes towards running the HM events and/or helping those living in the area in need of financial assistance.

If you would like to get involved with HM then please do get in contact. It can either be in overall running, or ad hoc helping. If you have a local initiative or idea you would like to see implemented, then do get in contact and we can talk it through. I am also happy to help publicise non-profit events etc on the facebook group.



Why did I set up Hampstead Mums?

I set this up initially as I wanted to share the list of classes I had collated for my friends. Over time, it evolved organically into what it is today. We started connecting more parents, organising playdates, finding nannies for each other. I think this is particularly important in an area like Hampstead, as it has such a transient/international population and many of us don't have family nearby.

The information for the local directory is mainly sourced from local noticeboards, directly from businesses & from parents on the Hampstead Mums facebook page.
