Cath Wilmot becomes our Children's Activities Expert in the North East ...

Cath Wilmot"Hi, I'm Cath and very excited to have just taken on the franchise for the North East What's on 4 Juniors.  I live in Newcastle with my husband Mike, and children, Henry aged 4 and twins, Thomas and Elizabeth, who are very definitely aged two and a half, plus my original baby, Billy the Cavalier King Charles Spaniel, aged 7 and still wagging!  I took a break from my previous incarnation as a chartered accountant when my twins came along to enjoy spending time being a mum and observing the all-round fascinating, if not occasionally demanding, social experiment that is 'life with twins’!  

Over the last few years, as well as working as content manager for an accounting website in my spare time (haha!), I’ve been thoroughly enjoying getting out and about with the kids.  We've visited all manner of clubs and activities from swimming to singing, and football to yoga, and not to mention rather a lot of messy play….. ! Not only has it entertained and stimulated my growing tribe but has also provided that piece of sanity and fun for me.  So when the opportunity came along to take on the What's On 4 Junior franchise and help to promote kids activities and resources around the region, this seemed like a ideal opportunity to give something back!"

What's On 4 Me in North East LONDON is now LIVE! Lindsey Gadwah is heading our newest Region!

Hi, my name is Lindsey Gadwah and I am the Franchisee for North-East London. Scottish by birth, I now live in Wanstead, Redbridge with my husband and two young daughters. I am looking forward to promoting exciting activities and events in the area as there is so much going on.

After a career working in various research and information jobs in the business, legal and public sector, I took a break when I had my two girls and with both of them now at school, I am now ready to begin a new chapter with What’s On 4 Me , working from home.

As a family, we love getting out and about, walking and cycling in a surprisingly green area which includes Epping Forest and Lee Valley Park. I also enjoy running in our nearby park (I hoping to run a 10k as my next challenge) and sometimes have time for the odd Zumba or yoga class. I have the best of both worlds as being so close to central London, I also have access to all the wonderful art galleries, museums and theatres there.

I believe that What’s On 4 Me provides a superb service in shining a light on all the diverse activities/classes that are out there and I am relishing the prospect of carrying on the good work in North-East-London.

So thanks for looking at my site. Do try a search, and see what enticing possibilities are out there in North London that YOU can be involved with. And have fun! What's On 4 Me North East London

Latest Report suggests that nearly 50% of mums are dreading the school holidays due to childcare issues

A recent survey reported that 40% out of 2000 mums surveyed are dreading the Summer Holidays and “the extra childcare and juggling it around work” named as the biggest issue for 48% of those.

Babyworld.co.uk summarised the key findings of their recent survey and report that:

“Four in ten mums are dreading the school summer holidays…Difficulties juggling work and childcare…mean millions of mums aren’t looking forward to the break from school at all.

Mums worry about the months of July and August in particular because they have to rely on friends and family to look after their children…Other concerns include having to return to a mounting workload after taking time off with children.

Half of the 2,000 working mums polled even admitted to reaching a point after three weeks and three days where they actually start looking forward to their children returning to school.

The study also revealed that 40% are dreading the start of the school holidays, with the extra childcare and juggling it around work named as the biggest issue for 48% of those.

More than a third even said they still haven’t got childcare arranged for the full six weeks…and 17% hate the fact they’ll eventually have to call on friends and relatives to look after their children so they can continue going to work.”

Marilyn Bradshaw from What's On 4 Me says: "This is of great concern to me, because I’m a working mum and, in contrast to 48% of other mums, I have been looking forward to this summer’s six-week holidays so that I can quality spend time with my two boys who are six and three year old. I’ve been looking forward to it so much that I’ve even invited my seven year old niece to stay with us for the holidays too, so that she can join in with the fun alongside my two boys.

The reason that I can work flexibly and that I’m looking forward to the holidays is that I work from home. I manage my business around my life. My business, What’s On 4 Me gives me the flexibility to do that.

I’m not taking any time off work and I’m not reducing my work hours, I’m simply working flexibly. So, I was amazed that such a high proportion of mums do not have a flexible work arrangement – especially when many jobs and businesses can be managed from home."

If this is YOU – if you are one of the four in ten mums that dread school holidays – then take a look at our What’s On 4 Me work-from-home opportunities. They may not be for you – but they could be?

We have work-from-home business and employment opportunities.

Joining our What's On 4 Me Team might not make a difference to the quality time you have with your children this summer, but you can start to prepare for the next holidays - in October. The majority of our UK team are work-from-home mums, so we know What’s On 4 Me works.  How wonderful would it be for you to spend every school holiday with your children?

Come on mums - start looking forward to your kid’s school holidays and spending quality time with them!

What's On 4 Me in North West Greater Manchester is now LIVE! Cindy Bolton is heading our newest Region!

Hello, I’m Cindy Bolton and I’ve joined the What’s On 4 Me team as the Franchisee for What’s On 4 Me Bolton, Bury and Wigan.

I’ve lived in Bolton all of my life and just love the variety and vibrancy of my home town and its surrounding areas. I’m a mum of two grown up sons who have children (my grandchildren!) of their own. Up until recently I worked in the voluntary sector where I know there are lots of activities which often go unnoticed.

From experience, finding local activities and events that you like to take part in locally, or learn new things can often be difficult and time consuming. This is what inspired me to take on What’s On 4 Me Bolton, Bury and Wigan. There are oodles of things to do if you know where to look!

I personally love variety. It’s the spice of life! In the past I’ve tried sailing, fencing and zumba. When I’m not jumping around, I love theatre, live performances of all kinds, eating out, yoga, meditation and so much more!

The What’s On 4 Me website is dedicated to adults from all walks of life, with interests as diverse as you can imagine. The website quickly shows the classes, groups, activities and events in Bolton, Bury and Wigan that you could try and be involved in. Now there’s no excuse not to have a fantastic social life!

What's On 4 Me in Central Manchester & Stockport is now LIVE! Carol Fry is heading our newest Region!

Carol FryMy Name is Carol Fry, I am the franchisee for What's on 4 Me in Central Manchester and Stockport. I live with my partner and our three children in Heaton Mersey. Between us we dabble in karate, rugby, football, gymnastics, music, chess and rounders and we’re always on the look-out for our next challenge. (I’ve got my eye on a Tabata class at my local sports centre which should complement my karate training nicely).

Up until very recently I worked for the Ministry of Justice as a court clerk in the crown court. I decided to take on the challenge of What’s On 4 Me in Stockport and Manchester in order to have a career that allowed me to work from home and have a better work life balance.

At the moment I’m diverting all my energy and spare time into training for my next grading in December 2011 when I’m hoping to earn my brown belt in Shukokai Karate. One of my goals in life is to achieve and then maintain a good level of fitness and flexibility. Up to now I hoped to achieve this by working towards attaining ‘the coveted black belt’. However, since taking on my local What’s On 4 Me I’ve come across so many different activities and classes that I want to try that I’m not sure how I’ll be able to fit it all in. I think I may have tipped the balance too far the other way!

Over 380 people from the world of sport and physical activity gathered at the County Durham Sport Partnership 7th Annual Awards Dinner on Friday 15 October 2010 at the Ramside Hall Hotel, Durham to celebrate the achievements of those involved in sport and physical activity across the county. 

The awards recognise the dedication and hard work of clubs, coaches, volunteers, community groups and schools in developing sport and physical activity in County Durham.

The evening kicked off with a dance demonstration by Xtreme Dance Fuzion, a group from Bishop Auckland. Kim Inglis, freelance TV presenter, hosted the evening and guest speaker Derek Redmond, one of Britain’s greatest 400m athletes, inspired the audience with his speech.

Ben Williams, County Durham Sport Executive Director, said: “This event recognises and rewards those who are often the unsung heroes of sport and physical activity. Without their commitment, the future of sport and physical activity in County Durham would not be as positive as it is. The continued success of the awards scheme is thanks to the involvement of all partners.”
