What's On

It's been an interesting 14 or so months, hasn't it?!

The last time we were properly open was March 17th 2020 which seems like an age ago.  Following the Government roadmap we can reopen our softplay and cafe, subject to some restrictions (similar to those when we opened briefly last October), on Monday 17th May.  An even better milestone is Monday 21st June when, data permitting, there will be no restrictions and we will be able to open up for birthday parties as well as everything else.

Until Saturday 15th May we will continue to run our Support Groups.  From Monday 17th May Boing! will look a little different - we will run three 2-hour sessions on a Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Friday and Saturday: all will be able to access the softplay and our cafe.  On Thursday we will run two specialist support groups.  The details for all these sessions are shown below.

We are also going to keep our booking system for the foreseeable future.  Due to wretched Covid we will only have a limited number (9 at time of writing) of booking slots available so you will need to book as early as you can to avoid disappointment.  Each booking will have its own table with a maximum of four people (including babies).  We will charge £3 per table, to be paid at the time of booking, and £1 per adult/child upon entry.  This will just about cover our costs so if you would like to help us further by making a donation, you can do so by pressing the 'how you can help us' menu button.

As always, if anyone has a specific need, wants to talk and/or can't access a session and really wants/needs to, please make contact with us and we will do our best to help.

Thanks for your support over a very trying and testing time.

Honeysuckle Cafe Breastfeeding Support Group (All Year Round)

Honeysuckle Cafe is a well-established, friendly and non-judgemental group for support and information about infant feeding. Run by experienced breastfeeding counsellors and peer supporters, with strong links with the Bristol Breastfeeding team, we welcome all families thinking about or giving any amount of breastmilk to their babies - newborns or older. We are happy to talk about anything associated with breastfeeding, including mixed feeding, weaning and pumping.

The cafe will be open most weeks (not during school holidays) for drinks and snacks - please do buy from us as this helps to cover our costs.  There will be a maximum of 9 available slots per session and a booking can only be made by one household).

For various (probably obvious) reasons we don't make a charge for this group but still have expenses relating to it. If you would like to make a donation to help cover costs and enable Honeysuckle to continue meeting at Boing!, we would appreciate it. There is a secure donations box at Boing! and/or you can donate via the 'how you can help us' button, above.
