Hello beautiful people, its a pleasure to meet you! I cant even put into words how excited I am for this new adventure with you all!

I’m Natallie, the new Owner and Editor of Derby Mums. I have two children, Oscar, 4, and Olivia, 2, who definitely keep me on my toes! I’m from Newcastle originally but relocated to Derby in 2016 with my family! We have lived here for 3 years now, and I love it!

Derby Mums helped kickstart my new life in Derby back in 2016. It was my first footsteps into the Midlands, via a social media post of course…

“Just wondering if there are any Derby mum and baby groups on Facebook I can join please?! I’m relocating to Derby beginning of September and would be good to meet some lovely mummies, babies and toddlers TIA xx “

Fast forward 3 years from this post; I now have 4 lifelong and trusted friends and the honour of calling one of their babies my Godson (Lennon!).

Being a mum of two is tiring at times however they are my little best friends. But as with all children of all ages comes hard work, patience, copious amounts of coffee, chinwags and the occasional tipple or two. So I raise my glass to each and every parent and guardian. You are all legends!

To me, Derby is the place to be (ooh look it even rhymes!) when it comes to raising a family. It has a little bit of everything – the only thing it lacks is a beach! Which I’m sure you all agree.

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 I 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.

Derby Mums also run a Membership Card, which is absolutely FREE to apply for – you can do this here. The Membership Card entitles you to special offers from local businesses; new deals are being added all the time. Simply fill in the quick form online to apply for your card today. Go do it people!

You can also join me on Twitter, Facebook and Instagram to hear the latest Derby Mums news.

I’m currently reviewing and updating the existing Derby Mums content – please bear with me during this initial transition period. Feel free to send any feedback to Natallie@derbymums.com.
