A huge welcome to StAlbansMums.com blog, the site I never thought I would find the time or skills to create. To introduce myself very briefly – I am Karen, mum to three (4, 7 and 14), living in St Albans, Hertfordshire for the past 13 years. My husband was born in St Albans Hospital circa 1980 and will thankfully ‘never leave’ so we have set roots here for the long term.
On Instagram I share photos and videos from local events, businesses, FOOD and my family. As ever, I am grateful that so many of our brilliant independent stores and restaurants share giveaways, offers and seasonal events and dates with me so that I can pass them on to YOU – on this blog I will spend time putting together this information, with an easy to access directory.
If you would like to include some information about your local business please contact me directly, supporting local businesses post pandemic has never been so important. This week saw the ease of lockdown in St Albans and so far I have wandered down George Street to say hello to my friends in Trinder Hair Studios, had breakfast at George Street Canteen, lunch at The Plough – Sleepshyde and I also have a few other things up my sleeve later this week.
One event I am excited about is in town this Friday (16th April 2021) ‘The Inside Our Market‘ where my own business Wine Social will have it’s first ever pop up wine stand. Myself and business partner Gordon launched this venture back in October last year. Gordon has 16+ years of experience in the wine industry and I probably have the same experience drinking it! Come and along and see us, sample some wines and get some shopping at the same time. Our main tasting will be between 12-1.30pm where we will be handing out samples of our best selling Fontessa Prosecco Rose… YUM.
