Below is a go at our first little plan, let us know what you think!
Media Release Number One
Press release on our launch!
Flyer Number One
Our first flyer for sharing around the community, includes the meeting dates
The vision for this network is so that dads, grandads and other male carers can have a space to connect with one another, learn from each other - all as informally as possible (ok, ok even setting up a group with a title and meetings etc is already way too formal?!) The problem is that for many men, who aren't naturally a ‘joiner’ of things, networks and friendships, particular don't happen naturally. SO without doing something we end up doing NOTHING. We watch with interest the significant women in our lives going off to playgroup and coming home with friends! How does that happen?
There are a couple of truths that we don't always like to admit, because we are men and we have it all in hand, have a cunning plan, have never dropped a ball yet!
(1)Parenthood and maintaining a positive, healthy relationship and work-balance is hard.....and (2) we cant do it alone.
Just being human and a grown up male is hard enough some days, so we wont run away from the chance to share life enhancing, inspiring messages on here that have helped some men on the journey. Take what you need and scroll down past the rest.
But...promise that actual meet ups will be simply coffee or a pint or two away from the noise and mess of the little ones. Unashamedly social and sociable. Who knows though whether a parallel programme of playgroups, courses, day trips, sport or events could happen in time- depends on some funding and interest.
