Where can new mums go, to have lunch where it’s warm and safe and you get to eat fresh soup and homemade cakes, while someone holds your baby? Too big an ask? Not at Wilsden Trinity! Every Monday lunch time, young mums come together and turn the giant quilt into a wriggling mass of cute babies with mums and helpers looking on!
During last Summer, a group of volunteers got together with Linda Storton to allocate jobs: from a prayer group to soup-servers, baby-holders to cake-makers and in September “Soupermums” was born. Posters and flyers flooded the village and Health Visitors and church members encouraged new mums to come along. It started slowly and quietly and is now a thriving, chatty, happy NOISY group!
Here's what Zack who comes with his mummy has to say:
"We’ve been coming since I was tiny and I’m ALMOST walking now! We like to come and meet new friends and I love all the attention I get from the helpers. I especially like the song we sing (I’m a bit of a star with the actions!) Mummy likes to eat her lunch in peace and gets to chat to all the other mummies and every week, she gets a prayer or poem to put in a book the Friends and Heroes children made for us. Me and Mummy are getting baptised there soon, not sure if that involves soup too but my new church friends at Wilsden Trinity are very excited about it!"
Anyway don’t take my word for it - here’s what Abi, one of the other mums, has to say about SOUPERMUMS!.......................
“Soupermums is such a giggle, not only do you get to eat yummy soup & cake in peace(for a change) while the babies play under the watchful eye of trusted helpers, you get to meet other mums from the local community & share advice & stories about your own parenting journey. Monday is definitely the new Friday with Soupermums becoming the highlight of my week :)”
