We normally have a sing song to close the group after tidying away, however all attendees are free to come and go as they please!

What the Club offers
Help and advice when you need it. Having a multiple pregnancy and birth is different from a singleton but most antenatal classes focus on expecting one child, so being able to link into a network of mothers who have been there can act as a great source of information and support.
A friendly face that really understands. Whether you’re a new mum facing all the problems and delights of newborns or a harassed mum facing the terrible twos in double or (help!) triplicate, there will always be someone to talk it through with.
Monthly Meetings: We meet on first Friday of every month at Donnington Village Hall, Chichester from 9.30-11.30. These sessions are suited for all families with bumps- to- be, newborns right up to the age of 5 years with activities provided to keep the older children occupied.
Social events: Every other month we try to meet to have mummy time at local pubs for the evening. It’s a night away from it all and gives us the opportunity to chat away without having to chase one child in one direction whilst trying to change a nappy on the other child!
Each year we host a Summer and Christmas party which is open for all family members to attend. It is always great for brothers, sisters and daddy’s to be involved! Even grandparents if they feel they can handle the noise and fun!
