An important date for your diary!
On Saturday 12th October it's the NCT Twickenham, Hownslow and District's ‘Big Push’ sponsored by Puddle Ducks!
It's a 5 km family friendly sponsored walk which aims to raise funds and awareness for maternal mental health big. The Big Push is a part of the NCT's #hiddenhalf campaign - fighting for a better 6 week check up, one which will allow doctors to diagnose and provide help for all new mums who need it.
And you don't need to 'push'! You and the family can walk, scoot, carry... tickets are £5 for one adult or £8 for two adults.
There's going to be a fun warm up provided by Tots, Squats and Coffee Pots, a fantastic raffle where you can win prizes from lots of local baby activity providers, and even a fancy dress competition for the best dressed parent, baby and buggy! It's Halloween themed so an opportunity to get a bit spooky!
And the best bit... the one and only Puddle the Duck will be there providing high fives and cuddles :) Here he is at the last NCT Big Push we supported in Wimbledon, photo taken by Thomas Lee Photography.
Let us know if you're planning to attend, hope to see you there!
There are lots of benefits to swimming for both parents and baby.
Swimming provides the opportunity for mum and dad to bond with baby, and enjoy the eye contact and skin-to-skin contact that babies love.
Swimming is a socially stimulating activity, especially if you attend classes, meeting mums and dads with children of a similar age, living in your area - the peer-to-peer support is invaluable.Learn more
Puddle Ducks provides the opportunity for parents to change their life with a new career.
Many of our teachers and even our franchise owners are mums or dads who came to our lessons and realised that this rewarding career, working with children, was what they wanted to do.Learn more
