Hi Derby Mums!

I’m Katie, the new editor for Derby Mums. I have two children, Henry, 3, and Blossom, 1, who definitely keep me on my toes! I’m from Cheshire originally but having met my husband at university, we decided Derby felt like home and have lived here for the past 10 years.

Over the last 8 years, I have worked as a primary school teacher in the city and although I loved my job, I’m excited for this new chapter in my life and the opportunity to use my skills in a different way. I know what it’s like trying to find things to do with your little ones and so I want to make Derby Mums your go-to place when deciding what to do or where to go!

On the site you’ll find sections on Editor’s Picks, Education, Food & Drink, Services, Shopping and What’s On. These sections are full of articles looking at what is on offer in Derby and the surrounding areas. Make sure to keep checking back to browse the latest features as we will be adding new articles all the time.

If you’re looking for something in particular, you’ll find the site easy to use – simply click on ‘Tags’ (underneath the search box on the right hand site of most pages) and then click the tag that best matches what you’re looking for.

We also run a Membership Card, which is absolutely FREE to apply for – you can do so here. The membership card entitles you to special offers from local businesses, and new deals are being added all the time. Simply fill in the quick form online to apply for your card today.

If you leave your email address on the right hand side of this page (or towards the bottom if you’re on a mobile or tablet), you’ll be one of the first to receive our regular newsletter, and you can also join us on Twitter and Facebook to hear our latest news.

We are working on updating the content so please bear with us during the transition period. Feel free to send me your feedback at katie@derbymums.com
