I’m delighted to be writing this introduction as the new Editor of Offspring, following in the rather large footsteps of Sarah G! Although I am a happy Mum of two babies (and three dogs) and a new ‘mumtrepreneur’ (insert shameless plug for Little Chicken Marketing here), I felt that I wanted to give something back to NCT and spend some of my spare time doing something worthwhile and fun.
And, I’m not the only newbie; Louisa H joins us as Branch Secretary, Frankie C is our new Bumps & Babes Coordinator, and Annabelle W has now taken on the role of branch coordinator as well as running our Waddlers & Toddlers playgroup since January. If you are interested in joining the team, we still need to fill the vacancy of Co-Chair / Deputy Branch Coordinator. It’s a lovely role and critical to the future on-going success of the branch – see page 13 for more details.
With a faint hint of warmer weather approaching, you can pick up some Spring and Summer clothing bargains for baby, toddler and older children up to age six, plus maternity items at our Nearly New Sale on Saturday 5th April at All Saints’ Academy from 10:30am-12 noon. New sellers to NCT might find our Top 10 Selling Tips on page 41 will help them see success, and an empty car boot!
Finally I’d like to Wish you all a very Happy Mother’s Day…let’s hope the baby
sleeps, the toddler learns to sleep in and mum gets a well-deserved rest!
