Introducing London Mothers Club - coming to a venue near you!

London Mothers Club is a new events club for mums across London. It started only a few months ago when Kerrie-Anne, new mum to Ivy, decided that she wanted to fill nap times with more than just extra house cleaning and day time TV. Kerrie-Anne was determined not to give up on the things she had once enjoyed and to make new mum friends with similar interests. After speaking to a few mums and realizing that she was not alone in this quest, Kerrie-Anne decided to create a club for mums that would offer all the things we formerly enjoyed! And this is where London Mothers Club was born.
