In my community I've just recently set up a group for Port Stephens parents. Port Stephens Social Parents is an informal group for mums and parents in the Port Stephens area, looking to make new friends through social activities!
It's purely a community group and since starting two and a bit weeks ago, we've already hosted a number of really successful events - afternoon teas, play time in the park, coffee meet ups, and a barbeque on the beach this Friday night for entire families.
So many families are new to the area, and many mums and dads don't know anybody. The group has been amazing for us all, and we've made some great new friends. We have events every week, and look forward to making new friends at every one of them.
Parents can come on their own, or they can bring their kids - entirely up to them. Just a laid back, friendly group.
PM me if you want to know more and I'll give you the details of where to find our FB group and check out our event calendar.
