We had the pleasure of being part of the Bump to Baby Event in Hoole, Chester on Sunday 16th February.
We felt very proud setting up stall amongst baby first aid, baby swimming lessons, positive birthing groups and healthcare businesses to name but a few. We took along a small selection of seats to give parents and parents to be an idea of what Car Seat Libraries UK is all about.
Throughout the day we met some wonderful people, though the same question tended to crop up; Now major retails like Mothercare are disappearing from the high street, who will provide high quality advice and guidance when buying a car seat? It was encouraging to hear the enthusiasm when we explained that’s one of the main reasons we started Car Seat Libraries UK in the first place!
We also got to answer lots of car seat questions and put some minds at ease. By using our demo rig we were able to set a “spot the error” challenge which proved quite entertaining and caused lots of head scratching as passers-by attempted to figure it out.
As quick as the weekend flashed by we’ve been straight back into meetings and phone calls this week, meaning we have lots of exciting news to announce soon, including a radio interview! But more on that at a later date.
In the meantime don’t forget our next library is in Manchester on Monday 9th March. Check out the Libraries page for more information. If there’s anywhere else you’d like to see the Car Seat Libraries please get in touch and let us know.
