    Hi I’m a single mum with 3 kids and I’m looking to meet up with other mums around the above areas.  My kids are ages eight, two and 6 months. Although my mum and dad live nearby I don’t have much of a network other than that – my siblings don’t live locally- one lives in Australia meaning my mum and dad are away for long periods at a time. I’m finding my 8 year old to be the largest problem as he has no real friends or cousins and spends most of his time playing computer games. So would be great to get out and about and meet others especially if anyone has kids around a similar age.  I have my own car and drive so willing to travel a reasonable distance.

    look forward to hearing from you

    Hi. I’m Gemma, and a newbie to Gingerbread and single mum life. I live in Cheltenham with my 8 year old son. I do have a large network of family and friends but no-one who is a single mum with a kid the same age, that can regularly hang out. I just want to be able to get of the house and meet someone who is in the same place as me, for coffee, while the kids can play and make new friends.

    Also drive, so happy to find mid-way point.

    Get in touch if interested in sorting something

    Hi Sarah

    I’m new to Gingerbread. I live in Stroud and am keen to meet other single parents as I don’t really know any.  My kids are older (16 & 13 – and i’m 49!).  I’ve emailed the group leader from Cheltenham and am waiting to hear.  Do get in touch if you’d still like to meet up with people

    Hi Zoe

    I haven’t heard back from the Cheltenham group leader so not sure it’s happening. Yes I’m keen to meet! Wed/some Fri & Tuesdays from after half term are good for me. I’m in Stroud (30/40 mins south of Chelt if u don’t know it!) Where are you based? Is Chelt a good place to meet for you?

    Look forward to hearing from you!

    Izzie 😁

    Hello all

    just replied to Izzie directly as I’m also in Stroud. I have just joined Gingerbread as I have an 8 year old boy ( I’m an oldie 55 year old single Dad!) and up for meeting other single parents, as couples w kids friends are just sometimes not around!

    Can meet Chelt/ Glouc area sometimes.

    Hi Nick/Zoe/everyone!

    I’m happy to meet in Stroud for a walk or something. I know one other single mum here who’d like to as well. Next Saturday any good? We will probably both be child free but it doesn’t matter either way. I need to double check that my son’s dad can take him to his sport! Appreciate it may be a bit far for you Zoe depending on where you live/whether you drive etc. Happy to travel nearer you sometime as well

    Look forward to hearing from you!

    Izzie 😁
