Mummy Mornings Group hold annual Easter Bonnet Parade at Merry Hill

The group celebrated Easter with their annual event at intu Merry Hill shopping centre.

Mummy Mornings was founded in 2008 by Liz Hollingshead, who had previously run similar events around Britain. She hit on the idea for intu Merry Hill when she noticed a lack of facilities for mothers with young children in the area.

Liz said: “I saw that local mothers with babies and young children needed a place to meet up regularly and the Merry Hill centre was the obvious choice. It’s warm and safe here, there’s free parking and intu’s in-centre staff are always so welcoming.

"Young mothers and carers can feel isolated and alone and the chance to share problems and concerns with other mums over a cup of tea while still caring for their little ones is always welcome.”

Mummy Mornings regularly raise money for intu Merry Hill’s chosen charity of the year, which this year is the Wolverhampton based Promise Dreams, a charity supporting families and children with life threatening or life limiting illnesses who they recently presented a cheque for £500 to.

The weekly meetings are held every Tuesday from 10.00am – 11.30am at Eat Central. The group supplies activities and toys for the children with refreshments including toast and jam donated by Sainsbury’s. The meetings are free to attend and the organisers ask for £1.00 donation towards a weekly raffle. Prizes are donated by the retailers within intu Merry Hill and proceeds from the raffle are donated to intu Merry Hill - £43.00 was raised at the Easter Bonnet Parade.
