MarlowMums is one of the biggest lifestyle websites within Buckinghamshire, aimed at providing an essential guide to mums and families in and around the Marlow area. From baby and toddler classes to clubs and activities, we also share top tips and info on schools, events, and local news relevant to all Marlow families. With 13 thousand avid users each month, we are excited to see our much-loved website growing!
We’re way too modest to boast (!!!) BUT we would not be here had it not been for our wonderful founder, Lisa! MarlowMums was created nearly 10 years ago, when Lisa was both a new mum and new to Marlow (having relocated from London). She found it hard to know what was on offer to keep her young children and herself busy throughout the week.
Having had a career in project management and web design, she thought ‘why not give it a go?!’ and built this site from scratch! A couple of years in, and Lisa found that there was a wealth of things on offer in our wonderful area…which is where this site was born. A hub was created to share with other mums, dads, grand-parents, carers and everyone who is trying to entertain little people! Whilst building new pages and generally enhancing the site, Lisa continued to dabble in project management, displaying her technical know-how and creative vision.
A few years later, when the site was growing considerably and Lisa was still beavering away, JoJo came onboard to lend a hand. Having moved from London to Marlow in 2013 and after a very varied (and random!) career in television, marketing, the charity sector and education, JoJo had her kiddies in Marlow and used this very MarlowMums site for inspiration! Now, being the writer and bringing a creative side to the site, JoJo continues to work on MarlowMums whilst training in Psychotherapy – which we hope will bring a different approach to the site, with further scope for development.
Fast forward to 2022, and this year we have been lucky to welcome Natasha to the MarlowMums family! Tasha was a secondary school English teacher, which we all know is no mean feat! Having lived and worked in London and Hong Kong for ten years, Tasha moved to Marlow in 2014 when she had her first child. Tasha also used MarlowMums to gain knowledge of the local area back then, and it aided her to build friendships within the community which is also testament to how personable Tasha is! Hence, she is our social media guru, successfully building relationships and promoting MarlowMums, whilst still working as an 11+ tutor!
The three of us together feel so lucky to be living in Marlow and to be able to promote local businesses that bring you all a wealth of knowledge about what’s on within the community. We hope you enjoy MarlowMums and thank you for using it…for sharing and liking on social media…and for helping to bring our lovely community together!
If you want to share your experiences at classes, groups and activities with others by adding reviews or (even better), if you have an activity that you enjoy with your family, please let us know about it!
