What we're about
Hi! I'm Rae, I run Brightons Very Sociable Book Club which has been a great success for 2 years now with lots of members and regulars.
Branching out a little, I'm setting up a new group to cater for Mums/Dads/Carers in Brighton who love their little cherubs, but want to do a little more socially for themselves. Yes, sometimes we may meet up at the local park but if we do, I'll be bringing Pimms/Prosecco in my packed lunch ... yes we may meet at the Skate Park on a Sunday afternoon but we'll be going to a "kid friendly" pub for a few Sunday beers on the way back .... you get the idea ;-)
Now and again we may even dump the kids with babysitters and go have some grown up fun! Its a great opportunity to build a supportive network in Brighton in a non exclusive group - we welcome all families of all shapes and sizes - it means our kids grow their own friendships circles and us parents can meet up to moan about the joys and tribulations of parenting! (Or we can forget we are parents entirely and just give them all a bag of haribo/quinoa* to share and hope they are quiet for half hour!)
I am gay myself with a partner and an adopted 8 year old - so all parents/families/carers of whatever shapes and sizes and makeup are all VERY welcome to join.
On application to join the group, please let me know your family set up, and why you wish to join.
First meet up to come soon.
