About Us

Welcome to Ripon and Nidderdale Mumbler!


Hi! I’m Nicola, mum of one, and I run Ripon and Nidderdale Mumbler! The two things I love most about Mumbler are 1) how easy it is to find all the things I need to know in one place, and 2) the community.

As a new mum, I used Harrogate Mumbler all the time to find information on baby classes running that day, inspiration for things to do at home and local days out that were pushchair friendly etc! As I made new mum friends I realised I was so passionate about supporting other mums and families because let’s face it… parent life can be hard!

When the opportunity came along to become involved with Ripon and Nidderdale Mumbler in March 2020, I grabbed it with both hands. I am a complete advocate for our local area and I love what Ripon and Nidderdale has to offer families. I want to shout about it all day long!

However, then the country went into lockdown (1.0) and Mumbler became about more than just ‘what’s on’ and ‘days out’, it was a support network for families coping with lockdown life. Whether that was help with home schooling or working from home, support for new mums, inspiration for daily walks or sharing the latest guidance etc. For me, this is fundamentally is what Mumbler is all about, supporting local families. As an ex-teacher in Ripon this has always been important to me but now more than ever after this crazy year!
