Hi, I’m based in Exeter and there is no group near me (I think Torbay is closest), but this would probably be easier for me. I have 3 kids (7,10, and 13), and while they have plenty of friends and social activities, we’ve had to move house and don’t have any family nearby (and no longer any support from my ex’s parents), so meeting up with other single parents would be great. We split about 6 months ago so I’m finding my feet financially, socially, work-wise etc as a single parent and would appreciate some advice from people who’ve been there! I’d love to just sit down and have a coffee with people sometime who are in a similar situation.
I thought I’d revisit the thread that started the Somerset gingerbread group, it’s been up and running for a few months now and I can honestly say I wish I’d taken the plunge and started the group a long time ago, everyone is fantastic and it’s really proving to be a really helpful and supportive thing.
If anyone is thinking of starting a group I would highly recommend it.
