A bit of background
The Berkshire Mummies blog was started in 2017 by Shona, a Berkshire mum of two. The aim of Berkshire Mummies is to share helpful information for Parents, Grandparents and Carers based in Berkshire. When Shona’s first child was younger Shona spent hours trawling the internet for places to go and things to do with her child. Berkshire Mummies was born from Shona sharing the days out she had organised for her family. Make sure you sign up to the Mailing List to get useful information straight into your inbox.
The Blog and Social Channels
Over the years Berkshire Mummies has grown and continues to grow. There are School Holiday What’s on Guides, blog posts about days out, family friendly walks, places to play and learn and much much more in Berkshire and the surrounding counties. Shona has reviewed many venues, theatres, restaurants, products and services which appeal to the Berkshire Mummies audience. Brands Shona has worked with include The Giggling Squid, Bills, Norden Farm, Henley Literary Festival and The Royal County of Berkshire Show to name just a few. If you would like to work with Berkshire Mummies please feel free to email to discuss opportunities and rates.
There is an active readership here on the blog but also engaged communities over on Instagram and Facebook – please do follow. Since starting the blog, Shona has also set up a Facebook Group – Family Walks in Berkshire after the popularity of her #walkoftheweek posts.
During the Covid-19 Global Pandemic Shona has added a new dimension to the blog and regularly shares crafts, activities and recipes to do At Home. These have been very well recived with one mother commented ‘Your account has been amazing throughout lockdown! And since we are now moving in to Berkshire it will be even more helpful with all the walks you share’.
Supporting and Championing Small Business
Shona is passionate about Small Business and has been since writing her University dissertation on the subject. Shona has observed that many of the Berkshire Mummies who follow her, have also set up their own small businesses, which is so inspiring. Shona uses the Berkshire Mummies Blog to champion Small Businesses via The Berkshire Mummies Directory, Guest Blog posts, Gift Guides, What’s On Guides and Berkshire Mummies Training.
