I’m Caroline. A local mum of 2 Mini Mumblers, I have a passion for bringing together the Doncaster parenting community. I love collecting and sharing the vast knowledge we have of our amazing area, to help make all of our busy lives that little bit easier!
I launched Doncaster Mumbler as my youngest child, at the grand old age of 4, headed off to ‘big school’ in September 2018. Inspired by the groups set up in Harrogate, York, Hull, Leeds, Wakefield and elsewhere in the country, we have a Doncaster Mumbler Facebook chat group, where parents can ask questions and support each other as parents of Doncaster. The collective knowledge that we all have of Doncaster is amazing and the website gives me the opportunity to collate all of this for you – a hub of useful family information for parents.
This year has thrown a lot of things in to chaos as we have all had to adapt and change through lockdown and Covid19. We’ve handled home-schooling, we’ve done virtual classes, there have been lots of lockdown babies with mums needing the support of the #Mumblerhood more than ever! I’m so delighted that I’ve been able to continue to support Doncaster families throughout it all. We’re all in it together!
September 2020 saw Doncaster Mumbler’s 2nd birthday and I’m pleased to say that August saw our busiest month ever with 40K people now using the website each month! Hello everyone and thanks for the support!
Having worked in the corporate world, I’m lucky that Doncaster Mumbler is now my job, which means I can spend more time with my children and it’s my job to keep the website completely up to date with the latest information for you.
Whilst I would never charge parents for using my site, companies do pay me to advertise and to promote them on this website and social media and I make no secret of that. I closely vet the companies and service providers who approach me however and whenever I talk about a brand or product, it’s because I genuinely like it and think that other Mumblers might too.
I would love to hear from Mumblers with any more ideas or thoughts that they would like sharing to the wider Mumbler community, so do get in touch – pop me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
I hope you enjoy the website!
