About Us

Welcome to Barnsley Mumbler!

Hi, I’m Kim. I’m a local mum to one Mini Mumbler. I moved to Barnsley with my family in 2013 and we started to get to know the local area and town, it’s such a friendly place with so much going on for families.

Parents lead such busy lives these days that time is of the essence and often we need help and information, like what to do, where to go and who to turn to instantly. The Barnsley Mumbler’s mission is to make this parenting thing a little easier by bringing all that information together on the one local site.

I hope you will find Barnsley Mumbler a valuable parenting resource, please tell your friends and family about it if you do. Equally, if you have any ideas or thoughts on what you would find helpful I’d love to hear from you.

There is a Barnsley Mumbler Chat Group, on Facebook designed to be a social hub for parents and the chat forum for the website. If you haven’t already, please come and join our growing community, make new friends and add your own fabulous advice or questions about parenting – all new members are very welcome!

You can also like our Barnsley Mumbler News Pages also on Facebook, to keep up to date with the latest goings on in and around Barnsley.

Thank you for taking the time to look around the website – make sure to visit regularly for the latest events, clubs and playgroups, family days out, offers, blogs and more!

Happy Mumbling

A general note about advertising on Barnsley Mumbler: 

Barnsley Mumbler is one of my jobs and I’m one of the lucky few who gets to make a living doing what I love. Whilst I would never charge mums for using my site, companies do pay me to advertise and to promote them on this website and social media and I make no secret of that. It is very similar to how traditional advertising works, like in a magazine, local newspaper or radio.

I closely vet the companies and service providers who approach me and I regularly turn down all sorts of things because I don’t like the company, the product, don’t agree with the brand’s ethos, or don’t think it’s relevant to the Mumbler audience. Whenever I do talk about a brand or a product, it’s because I genuinely like it and think that the Mumblers might too. I’m always honest, I won’t recommend someone or something if I don’t like the service or product, even if I do get a freebie from it. If I have nothing nice to say, then I won’t say anything at all.
