Mum to Mum MK is a Facebook group based in Milton Keynes, Bucks.
2018 is the year for our new website: www.mumtomumuk.com
Sam: The group was initially set up for 20 of my mummy friends to be in one place at one time. To share our skills, businesses, top tips, great things for children, personal recommendations and events. Today this group stands at 12,600 Facebook members and has remained a very special, informative and caring group. This group is recommended all over MK and the surrounding villages, and is growing by 150 new members each week!
From this page we created this Milton Keynes Mums #PayItForward #Blog which has 5,600 followers and a social media reach of over 150,000 hits in 2017.
This website is a hub of local information and our members use it daily to search for groups, activities, services, days out, recommended restaurants and local events. It has developed so much that the new website (launching in January 2018) is set to rival Netmums and give small businesses a big presence online. Representing 150 local businesses in Milton Keynes, Northampton, Luton and Bedford, gaining new PR clients daily this support group has also developed into a small business for Samantha.
Our members include parents from London, Northampton, Hertfordshire, Bedfordshire, Buckinghamshire and even Birmingham. All within one hour of Milton Keynes, as they want to be part of our awesome community! Our aim for 2018 is to start Mum to Mum networks in all these neighbouring towns and cities.
A popular feature is our seasonal ‘Whats on’ link for fun events over each half term.
We hold monthly coffee Mornings at Top Jump Trampoline park & 360 play, where mums and local businesses can connect, make friends, promote their business and this also raises money for local charities at the same time.
We love to promote local businesses, especially talented entrepreneurs and parents, as a lot of us have to change career once we have little ones. Our ‘Services Directory’ on our new website is filling up quickly with lots of local companies and Groups! From Cakes to beauty, counselling, networking, home services and many more.
