Welcome to the Mumsnet Local Portsmouth Blog, by a local parent, for local parents. I’ve lived in Portsmouth for two years now, but was born on the Isle of Wight. In between the Isle of Wight and Portsmouth, I’ve lived up and down the country, and I can honestly say nothing beats living by the coast.
This blog is intended, not just for people like me, who move to (or move back to) the area and need a pointer to all the great things we have here, but also to those who have lived here a long time or indeed have always lived here, but for whatever reason, aren’t in the loop. It’s for new parents, who just don’t know what is available. It’s for people who want inspiration to do something different today, tomorrow or this weekend.
If you know of a great café, a brilliant playgroup, or something somewhere that other local parents would appreciate, then please share it with me, and I will share it on here.
