I am honoured to be sponsoring the Sheffield For Kids Awards. As many of you will know I live in Sheffield and my business is also based in Sheffield. I have lived in Sheffield for over 14 years and I now couldn’t imagine calling anywhere else home. I have had 3 children in the last 6 years and thought I knew Sheffield pretty well (well maybe I did know my way around all the bars and clothes shops!) but as I didn’t grow up in the area I quickly realised that kid wise I really didn’t know Sheffield well at all. I didn’t know the best places to go or things to do, especially those that would be toddler friendly, well you know, if anything can ever be completely toddler friendly!

I came across ‘Trips with a tot’ on Facebook. It was set up by a lovely mum called Naomi. Naomi post videos and blogs about all the trips she does, she certainly gets about! She is so inspirational not just in terms of where you can go with little ones, but also other tips to keep costs down, where to eat, other places to visit whilst you are there and she is so honest in her reviews she became an online mum that I knew I could trust. Oh by the way she also visits other cities on weekends away and she doesn’t drive and makes sure she gives you all the details of how to get there. Naomi is also an amazing breastfeeding advocate, she often talks about it or breastfeeds in her videos and photos. She also produced a blog specifically on places she likes to breastfeed.

She has also created a really supportive online community where parents share their trips and share local advice. She really is an excellent ambassador for Sheffield as she really makes you see all the wonderful places we have access to. I am therefore honoured to be supporting the second year Naomi has run awards for Sheffield.
The Sheffield For Kids Awards is a chance to really promote, shout, be proud and celebrate what we have here in Sheffield for kids – such as best local parks and playgroups, to best indoor and water play, best toddler groups and best place for family eating.
