Hello and welcome to the Shipley Mums website!

Why Shipley Mums?

As a new mum, in a new town, far away from my family and friends, I was completely clueless when it came to what to do with, or where to take my baby daughter…  I didn’t know anybody and was extremely daunted by the prospect of even leaving the house… It took me 8 weeks and the help of a lovely fellow mum who I got talking to one day, to pluck up the courage to go to a local baby and toddler group – and I’m so glad that I did!

It opened the door to a whole new world, I met some wonderful friends, my daughter finally had some playmates and we really started to get to know Shipley & Saltaire and the people living here.

And so our journey began…

A few years down the line, and now super busy looking after two children, time and time again I was finding out about amazing local events – after they had happened…  and it is for both of these reasons that you have now found, and are reading about, Shipley Mums!


Who is it for?

This website has been set up for the parents and carers of children of all ages living in, or visiting, Shipley and Saltaire, and the surrounding areas. Whether you are a mum, dad, grandparent, friend or carer, we hope that you will find in us a valuable source of information to help keep your little, or not so little, ones entertained!

Here you will find listings for weekly baby and toddler groups, classes, clubs, courses, activities, days out and party venues, as well as information about one off upcoming events.

Our aim is to collate and share the huge selection of fantastic child and family-friendly activities and events that go on in our local area, as well as to provide new parents, particularly the mums, with that all important local information to help ease those first steps into the world of parenthood.

If you run or know about any groups, classes, local activities or events etc… that you would like to see listed (or anything else for that matter!), please get in touch via the contact page.
