Ready Steady Mums

Ready Steady Mums (RSM) Ripon is a free walking group for new mums and their babies. RSM is a nationwide, volunteer-led community exercise movement which allows mums to socialise in a fun and active way, thus helping your body recover from birth whilst engaging and building frendships with other local mums.

The Ripon group leaders Louise Wills and Gemma Edghill have worked together in collaboration with RSM Harrogate to bring together new mums in the local community in a friendly and supportive environment. One of us will always attend during term time and where possible during school holidays. Details of the walk are below:

Day – Every Thursday (starting 27th April)

Time – 10am

Meeting place – Ripon Spa Gardens bandstand

The walk lasts around 30 mins (at your own pace) with coffee after at Holy Trinity Church. All are welcome.
