On Tuesday 26th, we published an article from Sue Hardacre in which she remembered the old 'Babysitting Circle' in the Tarvin in the 80's and wondered if there might be a place for something similar today. Tarvinonline received a response from a young Tarvin Mum who felt that the idea had some merit.

If the parents of young children have no family nearby then the expense of a babysitter can easily add £20 to the cost of an evening out. She said "I would happily be in a babysitting circle if I knew there was one"

Having spoken to her, Tarvinonline is publishing her email address so that any other parents out there who agree might take the suggestion further. Contact and good luck!
