On Essex Mums this month
Hope you like the new look newsletter. Hopefully this one will be a little easier to find your way around!

Easter Holidays
As most of the schools have broken up, or will be breaking up for Easter and many working parents have some time off to spend with their little ones, this newsletter will be mainly dedicated to what's on over the Easter period. You can find a selection of spring events across the county below, or take a look at the Things to Do section for the full listings. 

School Admissions
Are you one of the many parents across the county who has just found out their child's secondary school placement, or is waiting to find out which infant school their little ones are going to? Why not come and discuss how you feel about this in the forum. There's a special Schools section where you can chat about everything from the school itself to your fears about such a big change. It can be so useful to have support from other parents in your position and to hear the experiences of those who have been there before. 

Pregnancy and Parenting
There's a brand new section on the website this month with fantastic articles about pregnancy and parenting written by some of our lovely Essex Mums. It's a work in progress and will take a while before we have everything on but I'm very excited that it's taking shape and am extremely grateful to everyone who has been working hard on it. If you're interested in contributing, take a look at the details here.

New newsletter ad rates
With the new look newsletter comes some new ad opportunities. Starting at only £10, take a look at the updated rate card for all opportunities.


Things to win! Check out the great competitions we currently have running. If you would like to run a competition yourself please let me know - it's a great way to advertise for free and also give something lovely to parents in Essex!

Product Reviews

Here's a list of what's been added this month! You can see a bit about each of our reviewers here, or can go straight to the reviews here.


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.
