    Hi there

    If you are interested in setting up a friendship group in your area then I would be happy to support you with this.  Gingerbread groups could be a great way of connecting with other single parents in your community.  If you would like further information please contact me at groups@gingerbread.org.uk  If you would like to register an interest, then please click on this link and complete the details.

    Kind regards, Justine

    Hi Jorgie.

    Sorry for the delay in replying.

    It’s great that your thinking of starting a group, I think that there would be quite a few people interested, it’s just a case of finding a way to reach out to them.

    From the way I understand it there’s a certain amount of organising to do and if be willing to help if you need me to.

    I’d be interested too. Separated for 3 weeks now and struggling with it all.

    Hi, I’m a mum of one 6 year old living in Taunton. I’m in a new relationship, but interested in meeting other local parents who’ve been through the same as me, (still going through actually).

    Hi Fjwilde,

    I’m sorry to hear that you’ve split so recently, life can be rubbish at times.

    I’ve got a lot going on over the next couple of weeks but after that if there is continuing interest I could probably arrange something. I’ve already got a CRB so that makes life easier as it can take up to 6 weeks to get. I believe it’s a requirement for gingerbread to set up a group meet.

    I’ve been a forum user for a long time but have never given any though to setting up a group. If you need an update(or just want to prod me to get on with it)please message here or private message me.

    😊 I take it that when I sort it you’ll be joining us then, that’s great!

    I’m thinking Taunton area but leave it with me.

    As I’ve mentioned I’ve got shed loads of things going on over the next few weeks. I’ve got to speak to gingerbread about starting  group before I arrange anything.

    In the meantime please feel free to suggest meet up places as Jorgie has done.

    I quite like the idea of Exmoor zoo or Watermouth castle.

    I could probably get a vehicle for 8 passengers plus me as a driver for cost price for anyone that doesn’t drive.
