What a scorcher at Hampstead Beach

Well the weather this week is a story of two halves. Sitting here actually still drying off from last nights deluge, looking back what amazing weather we had for one of the fun-ist (is that a word??) of days. This year’s Parent & Baby Fest at JW3 saw more than 500 of you come by to say hello and to hang out with us indoors (when it got too hot) and outdoors when it cooled to hang out on Hampstead Beach.

There was heaps to do and oh my you are creative. We love this kind of event Pop Up and Free, it’s the very best way to get to meet you and say hi and hear about what matters to you and just hang out with a cool drink, enjoying the summer.


The Riverside Cares Team had the best fun underpinned with serious classes about stuff that mattered. Nutrition, first aid, what to do in an emergency plus lovely sing a long events, art, crafts, opera baby and puppet shows.


Checkout everything out ….

We also had a nifty little raffle and we’re delighted to announce a winner!

who has been given a free place at our very popular Baby and Child First Aid session at JW3 on November 5th. Here’s more about the session if you’d like to join and it’s always worth keeping an eye on the events page 


The day ended up with a lovely singalong of  You are my Sunshine and old favourites like the  The wheels on the bus … a rendition by Jill and Jay which will remain long in our memories:)

The day was sprinkled with liberal amounts of sparkly stuff…..

Fairy dust was lovely spread at the fest throughout the day
