Mel PictureGB merged with ‘One parent’ families in 2007. JK Rowling is the charity’s president.

GB is run by single parents for single parents. The group YorkGingerbread launched May 25th 2015. I regularly use the expression ‘slow burner’. A new group member recently said ‘at least it’s been lit’ I thought that was very positive.

That’s the aim of the group. A positive beginning to your week. The group is held in the main hall 10 – 12 every Monday. Inc Bank Hols. Let us not forget how lonely Bank holidays can be for a single parent! I’m thankful I now have something in my diary!

I have tried to create a friendly, non judgemental, supportive and safe environment for parents and children ( of any age to enjoy) Or solo if one has a child in school.

The group has no entry fee. Though a small cost for refreshments. Hot drinks and a variety of cakes…………………….croissants, pastry’s etc.

There is plenty to keep the kids entertained. Lots of space for them to run around in also.

 I have a variety of literature available with some excellent advice. Joining the GB site will allow you access to ‘tailored advice’ for free. There are also forums available.

 The group can be taken in any direction it’s members want! Guest speakers, day trips, picnics and maybe even a night out here and there.

 So please don’t be shy, do come and visit us. Let’s have tea and cake together! (Freshly made by Claire’s Cakes!)
