#KNOWvember. A Whole Month Of MGF Events And Workshops – We Want To Get To KNOW You.


For the fourth time, #knowvember is BACK! It’s our flagship event and our favourite month of the year. Read on to find out more!

November – it can be a bit …….. blah!

The summer feels like a long time ago, there’s only one more pay day until Christmas (sorry!) and it’s pretty cold and dark. Not really that conducive to parents getting out and about and meeting each other, making friends or having fun.

Not. This. Year.

November 2016 was officially re-branded #KNOWvember (see what we did there) and has hence forth been known as a great month to learn new things, meet new people, take on new challenges and – quite frankly – just get out of the house with or without kids.

We want to get to KNOW you, and for you to get to KNOW each other (there we go again, with the whole KNOWvember thing). This is why we’re putting on a WHOLE MONTH of workshops, events and general face to face shenanigans to reduce isolation, combat dreary-weather-whiny-kids-itis and have a lovely time.

(In all seriousness, parental mental health is something we take very seriously and we are working hard to create opportunities to improve the mental and emotional wellbeing of all our members, and the parenting community as a whole).

We have a whole range of things: some free, some paid for, some educational, some fun, some cockle-warming and some just for the sake of it.

Here are a few to get you started; we will be adding more over the next couple of weeks so watch this space. For up to date information, all our events are listed under the ‘events’ tab on our Facebook page – www.facebook.com/MGFund as well as our website here.
