What's On

Following a very 'interesting' time between March 2020 and summer 2021, we are back to business!

Covid has left a bit of a legacy - but we have embraced this as many of the changes we had to make have made us more robust and improved the safety and security for staff and customers alike.

We now run three 2-hour sessions from Monday to Friday - a few are for specific groups of people but the majority are generally for families of children aged 0-5 years. 

 

We are going to keep our booking system for the foreseeable future.  We do need to continue to limit bookings to 9 families per session but, actually, feedback from families about this particular change has been very favourable. This does mean that you will need to book as early as you can to avoid disappointment.  Each booking will have its own table for a maximum of four people (including children but not babes-in-arms). 

 

We will continue to freeze our prices at £3 reservation fee per table (to be paid at the time of booking) plus £1 per adult/child upon entry.  Please be aware that this will only just cover our costs so if you would like to help us further by making a donation, you can do so by accessing this link, 'how you can help us'.

As always, if anyone has a specific need or issue, 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 very best to help.

Thanks for your continued support.

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.

From September 2021 we will charge £2.50 per child for older children to use the softplay.
