Coffee Mornings

W30I’m Kerstin Nott and I run 3 parents coffee groups within Bettws ELC in Newport which acts as a peer support group.


The coffee groups and Biscuit Club run at:

  • Bettws in Bloom Mondays 9.30 – 11.30
  • Monnow Parent Coffee group, Wednesdays in the Community Cwtch 9.15 – 10.15
  • Ysgol Gymraeg Ifor Hael parents Coffee group 9.30 – 10.30

During the coffee sessions I also work as an information hub and collaborate with partners to referrer families for food bags, work and childcare advice. Lots of our work is focused on healthy relationships. Some of the activities we have had are junk modelling, making gloop, playdough, and tips on playing with your child. Within the sessions, depending on requests from you as parents, I invite partners such as the family information officer, cyber information officer and midwife to come and give information and advice to parents attending. The groups are connected on whatsapp groups, so they still have the connection after working hours.
