Happy Autumn! 

Well the season has well and truly turned. What an amazing summer it was, but now it's time to get those Autumn / Winter jumpers out and enjoy everything this lovely new season has to offer! 

We've had a wonderful, if not a little busy, summer. We've had loads of adventures, days out and managed to fit in a house in the process (don't worry, we're still in York... wouldn't leave this amazing city for the world!) 

So I, for one, am really enjoying getting back to normality and the routine of things now that it's September! 

We've been busy as always here at York Mumbler - making sure all of the regular weekly classes and groups are really up to date on the website, as well as adding in some new ones (you can see a summary of these in this BLOG I published earlier in the month) Check out Diddi Dance which has just come to York.. details for that are below. 

As we've been moving house, we've been taking full advantage of the knowledge from the Mumber Trusted Trades page - in case you're not aware we list the most recommended traders in York on the website so whether you're looking for a Plumber, Electrician, Hairdresser or Dog Walker... we've got loads of recommendations on there for you and you know they come with the local parents seal of approval. (They have to have received at least 2 genuine recommendations from Mumbler before they can get on there!) 

We've also been busy looking for the events, activities and classes that are happening for October Half Term & Halloween. You can see them all listed HERE and many require pre-booking so keep checking on there. If you need childcare over half term then there are also some great option on the website HERE.

Finally, we've been starting to list the local Christmas Events, Places to see Santa and Pantomimes and Shows - you lot are being very organised this year so we are being too! We're adding more every day - and don't forget to contact us if you find something that we haven't! 

We have the next Baby & Toddler Nearly New Sale on Saturday 10th November so if you want some Christmas Bargains then come along to that and say hello. Also look out on the York Mumbler News Page for the next Mumbler Meet Ups as they are starting again from October.

I hope you all have a great month. 

Lots of love
