LLL Bristol meetings Jan-Apr 2019

lll group meetings

We continue to hold 2 meet ups, on the 2nd and 4th Thursday of each month. We have a new venue at Avonmouth Community Centre, our meetings here are ideal for those of you with older children as there are plenty of toys and space to play while we chat. Whatever the age of your nurslings, you are welcome to come along to either meeting.

Our meeting titles are just a starting point, don’t feel put off if it doesn’t seem relevant to you just at the moment. It’s often surprising where the conversations lead, and there’s always time to chat about any issues which mums bring along on the day. There will always be an LLL Leader around to talk to about any specific concerns as well as our extensive library on all manner of breastfeeding topics. 

Meetings are free and open to all, however if you are not an LLLGB member we ask if you are able to make a donation of £2. This helps us keep our Leader’s training up to date, run our library and keep the all important tea and coffee flowing. Becoming an LLL GB member is easy, just visit https://www.laleche.org.uk/join. Membership starts at £2.50 per month. As well as your local meetings you’ll receive regular copies of LLL’s Breastfeeding Matters magazine. 

All meeting are from 10:30 – 12. Meetings are held in mothers’ homes, so we do ask that people keep an eye on the end times.

As always there will be time for a chat about any other questions you bring on the day.

Bring yourself, your little ones and if you like a healthy snack to share. Meetings are free, but we do ask that if you are not a member of LLLGB you consider making a donation of £2, to help us keep the group running.
