After having a much-needed rest, Derby Mums is back, bigger, brighter and better than ever!

is ready and raring to go and is busying away studiously to prepare DMs for its relaunch at the end of the summer.
As a teacher, busy mum, and Derbian born-and-bred (apart from odd dashes living and teaching in Canada, America and Brazil!), our new Editor, Karen is passionate about creating a site that is relevant, up-to-date and USEFUL for busy mums, dads, carers and their friends and families.

We all want to know where the best places to shop, eat, play and visit are, and we want to find out that information in one place, local to us, with reviews we can trust and handy hints and helpful information along the way.

We know that mums have limited time, money and sometimes ideas (I bracket myself quite firmly in this group!) and need support, inspiration and hints to get the most out of our budget, hours in the day and our patience! Derby Mums will strive to find those hidden gems that are sparkling away all over Derby – whether it be a café with amazing kids’ meals and fab baby-changing facilities, fun activities and events that need to be shouted about so that everyone can join in the fun, or up-and-coming gyms, spas and restaurants for treat time for mums (and dads!).

We are always looking for new, exciting and creative businesses to work with on Derby Mums, so if you, or anyone you know is a ‘mumpreneur’, whether it be making, baking or shaking (bad attempt to rhyme – I have a fab friend who teaches Zumba, so I guess that’s classed as ‘shaking’, right?!), please contact us to let us know about them.
Likewise, if you’ve visited a boutique, bar or baby class that you think Derby mums would love to hear about, please let us know!


Check out our new Membership Card Partners, don’t miss our competitions, check in with our Mangled Mama’s blog and don’t forget our facebook page, too!


We look forward to keep bringing you all this info and insight with humour, amazing deals and discounts for local businesses and services, competitions, interviews, app suggestions for the busy parent, recipes and even a special corner for the Dads to huddle together and feel loved!

We can’t wait to make this an exciting, friendly and quite frankly unmissable part of your Derby Mum day!
