On Essex Mums this month
Hi everyone, I hope you had a lovely Easter weekend and have spent lots of quality time with your family! I'm sure you checked on Essex Mums regularly for things to do and places to go! The main focus of this newsletter will be on all of the fantastic things there are to do over the rest of the Easter Holidays, but firstly I would like to introduce our newest arrival, Dexter, who joined us in the early hours of March 14th. He weighed 7lbs 11oz and is extremely cute and dinky. So far he's been incredibly laid back and a very welcome arrival to our family. I've even managed to get a bit of work done, though I think I may have to have a bit of a lay down after getting this newsletter together! 



It's taken a while but I've recently added some buttons to the site that allow you to add your business, event or restaurant to the site with ease. Click below to add yours!

PeapodPeapod Cafe
We are very excited to announce the Grand Opening of a new Healthy, Wholesome, Family Cafe opening on Saturday 6th April 2013. 
 
PeaPod Cafe offers a relaxing environment, where you can catch up with friends, read a magazine or feed your little ones. We love fresh ingredients, and so our menu is ever changing, but you can be sure that our food is full of flavour and goodness. We hate additives and where possible we source local and organic produce. 
 
We look forward to welcoming you to PeaPod Cafe!

We have all the events here on Essex Mums, now we just need the weather!
