We are very grateful that BEST is able to use the space although the café is closed. Please bring a drink and we’ll provide the cake!

There is parking right outside the café. The number 51 bus stops a short walk away.


The outdoor support groups proved popular and as the weather turns autumnal, we will continue to take precautions to keep you safe at our group.

Regulations mean that we cannot have more than 15 adults at the group excluding the paid Breastfeeding Counsellor. However, 2m social distancing remains of paramount importance. The room will be assessed before each new parent enters to ensure that social distancing is not compromised.  Therefore you may be asked to wait until someone has left.

We will be collecting information on arrival for Track and Trace via our electronic sign in forms.

Please do not attend group if you are unwell, even with cold symptoms. If you have symptoms of coronavirus you will need to isolate for ten days and your household contacts for fourteen days, unless your test is negative. Please also do not attend if you are quarantining after returning from abroad.

If you would like help with positioning and attachment (“latching”) please consider booking a virtual one to one or bear in mind that we’ll be socially distancing in the group

We will be ensuring rooms are thoroughly cleaned and providing alcohol gel to sanitise hands. Please wear a mask on arrival until you are settled in your space. We ask that families continue to keep 2m spacing from each other as we have done in our outdoor groups.

Please come with your own drinks, however in true GBSN style we will provide the cakes.  Please bring whatever you need for yourself and your family eg changing mat, snacks.
