We were very lucky with the weather, it was a real scorcher all morning. We met at a lovely cafe next to a park with a paddling pool right on the beach in Brighton. We were a total of 5 families, with families coming to join us throughout the morning.
The children had huge milkshakes and ran off to the park and later the beach to be buried in the stones by one of the Dads and most of the parents stayed and drank a posh tea or two and chatted about CMN and about life in general.
It was nice to meet in an informal, small group. Easy to talk to each other, relaxed. I think we would all be happy to do it again now the children have met and got on with each other and of course welcome more members.
