    Hi Cat and all at Shipley Mums,
    Wonderful website and great resource for parents living in the Shipley area!
    Just wondering if this is of any interest to you: the second friday of every month I do a pop-up crepe stall in the yard at the back of Shipley Health Store, in Westgate (back of the clocktower in Shipley), a couple of mums and young children have visited the place and liked this little pocket of calm where you can sit down and munch on a crepe (washed down with a free herbal tea too:-) Next date is friday 8th feb, 10.30am to 5.00pm, would it be ok to publicise this on your page? Many thanks, and all the best!
    Isabelle @The Mobile Creperie… Oh! And Shrove Tuesday special: Free crepe to any child who can tell me the origins of the expression “shrove tuesday” (hint: check out the latest posts on the facebook Mobile Creperie page for clues:-)
