What is Buttercup?

Buttercup is our Thursday afternoon 'bumps and babies' group.  It is a lovely place for mums in the St John's area to come and meet each other and share the challenges of being a new parent together.  We welcome mums with babies up to 1 year old; expectant mums are also welcome!  It is run by St John's volunteers under the leadership of Sarah Walter.  (We also have a Monday morning mums and toddlers group called Mummy & Me.)

We aim to:
- be a place where mums from the local St John's community can come and feel welcome and make friends with other mums at the same stage
- provide a safe and happy environment for babies, but please remember that they are your responsibility at all times
