Our Facebook group ‘Mum to Mum MK’ is a place where new mums to the area can meet and chat online. We ‘recommend’ local events, groups and local companies / services and help raise money for charity. As we can see from the list of Postcodes below, the area is huge and it can be very daunting meeting new friends in such a vast area. So we are breaking it down to postcode areas to make it easier to see ‘what is near you’.
