Mums looking for a way to meet new friends and give their children a chance to play and mix with other youngsters now have a new place to go.

The Falkirk for Mums Meet Up takes place each week in an empty shop unit beside Marks and Spencer in the Howgate Centre.

It is organised by Ria Marshall who runs the popular Falkirk For Mums page on Facebook.

Ria said: “When I set up the group, lots of mums said there weren’t a lot of places to go with children.

“Margaret Foy at the Howgate very kindly said we could use the shop unit here. It gives mums - and dads - the chance to have a blether and just get out of the house. It makes them feel less isolated too.

“It’s also a chance for children to socialise.”

Every week there are a wide variety of toys for the youngsters to play with, themed activities as well as arts and crafts.

WHO: Falkirk For Mums Parent Meet up.

WHERE: Shop unit next to M&S, The Howgate, Falkirk

WHEN: Mondays, 9.45 a.m. - 11.15 a.m.
