It's all change over the next few months here at Sheen Slings!
Firstly we are adding a new location - Kingston! From May onwards the Children's Centre are kindly giving me a monthly slot to come and run a Sling Library session. Exact dates and times to follow, but there will be 1 session a month going forward. And I couldn't be more excited! This is something I have wanted to do for a long time,... I have so many clients coming from Kingston, Surbiton, Hampton, Esher and further and I know that this is an area in need of a Sling Library, and now with Rachel almost at nursery age and with a great venue on board it has finally been possible.
Secondly, we are extending and refurbishing our home. Well our downstairs specificly. We've been planning this, thinking about it, slowly making it a reality since we bought this house 3 years ago. I am equal parts terrified and can not wait for it all to start come April. But it has impacts for Sheen Slings. For the last 3 years I've run the majority of my Sling Library sessions from my home - and this has been fab, its allowed me to continue running the Library while pregnant, then with a very young baby through to a crazy running everywhere toddler. For the next few months at least while the work is carried out I can't continue to run these sessions from home. Too much dust, noise and too little space! So the last session at my home for a while will be Tuesday 19th March. But fear not... Sling Library Drop In sessions will continue - I already run a monthly session at the Barnes Children's Centre (67b Lower Richmond Road, Mortlake, SW14) on a Friday at 9.30-10.45 - see full dates and details here. And as above there will be a new monthly session in Kingston going forward too! The timing feels right to move these sessions away from my home and into the Childrens Centres, alongside other support for new parents.
Private consults will continue as normal, I can still come to clients homes and clients are still welcome to come to my home too - I will just ensure I arrange these at times when the builders aren't making too much rackett (and/or mainly at weekends). And likewise I am still very open to organising bespoke workshops so if you have a small group, who are all interested in learning more get in touch and I can come to you!
