Hello and welcome to Raring2go! Bournemouth.
I’m Michelle, mum to an 17 year boy and 7 year old daughter, and Editor of your Bournemouth Raring2go! magazine.
Being a busy Mum myself, I know how hard it is to keep the children occupied which is why I just love working with Raring2go! and helping you to keep up to date on what's happening in and around Bournemouth, Christchurch, Ringwood, Verwood and Ferndown.
As a family we love getting out and about visiting local attractions and enjoying the wonderful part of the UK we live in with the beautiful beaches and the New Forest close by. My children are busy as well taking part in lots of the local clubs and classes on offer – so plenty of first-hand experience to share with you.
There is such a great deal going on in Bournemouth, sometimes it's hard to cram it all into one edition; but remember it's your magazine, so if there is something going on that we've missed, let us know .... It could be a great day out, a restaurant you love, a new dance class or a fabulous place to play. Whatever it is, tell us and we'll share it with Bournemouth.
Raring2go! is distributed four times per year, and we work hard to make sure that each edition is jam packed full of useful stuff, plus in-between magazines there is our website at www.raring2go.co.uk/bournemouth. Please ensure you like us on Facebook and Twitter where I post daily updates to help you plan some fantastic activities for your children and fun family days out.
Also, don't forget to keep a special eye out for the great competitions that we run too - there are some fantastic prizes up for grabs!!!
