On Essex Mums this month
Hope you're enjoying the lovely weather and finding lots of fun things to do with your family this half-term! There's certainly plenty to do - just check out the Things to Do section in your area to find something near you!
Bumps, Babes and Kids
A big hello to all our new members from Bumps, Babes and Kids. I hope you've had a look round the site and found it to your liking! Please do come and say hello in the forum - we're a very friendly bunch and always love to have some new faces chatting with us! If you'd like some pointers as to what you can find on the site, you might fine this page useful: New to Essex Mums? It was also lovely to see so many familiar faces and get some great feedback about the site from so many of you who came to say hello - can't wait for the next one!
Summer Holidays events
Please do send over any events you would like listed in the Things to Do section for the Summer Holidays as soon as you can - it would be great to get them on there asap. You can send them to me at email@example.com or just post them yourself in the forum.
Meet Up at Partyman World, Lakeside
We have meet-ups fairly regularly but have a great one coming up I thought I would let you all know about - we're meeting at Partyman World of Play in Lakeside on June 8th at 12pm. The lovely people at Partyman have offered free admission to everyone coming along for the meet - you'll need to tell them you're here with Essex Mums by saying 'Essex Mums meet Cosmo' at the counter and you can then be pointed in our direction. There should be some new faces there so don't feel shy if it's your first meet. For more info and to get to know some of us that are going, come and take a look in the Meet-Ups section of the forum.
Free Directory & Half-Price Shopping Guide Ads
As the offer I did earlier in the month was so well received, I've decided to keep it going for a while longer. As such, I'm offering FREE Budget Directory listings as well as £5 off a Standard listing (making it £15) and £10 off a Premium Listing (making it £20). These listings last a lifetime and you can upgrade to a better listing at some point if you prefer.
I'm also offering Shopping Guide ads half-price as we're so far through the year, so they are now £25 for the rest of the year, or £50 for the rest of the year and the whole of 2012. Email me on firstname.lastname@example.org if you're interested in either of these offers.
We've had some brilliant competitions on the site recently, so make sure you check the Competetions page frequently for new ones. In the next few days I'll be adding a fantastic prize - four tickets to the 3 Foot Festival! This amazing day out normally sells out nearly as quickly as Glastonbury! A big thank you to Seymour House for providing us with the tickets.
New on the Shopping Guide
The Shopping Guide features both a shop listing and a product listing to help you find that perfect gift, whether it's for someone else, or for yourself! The guide features lots of lovely products that are a bit different to what you'll find on the High Street, and new products are being added all the time. Take a look! If you are interested in being featured, please let me know.
New additions this month:
As always, please send any events, feedback, ideas etc. to me at email@example.com. I love hearing how people use the site and ways I can improve it.
I hope you have a lovely month and that I'll get to see you at a meet-up soon.
