A Blyth mum is celebrating after her toddler group was named one of the best in the county by the UK’s biggest parenting website.

Shirley Henderson’s group Tiddlywinks was voted one of the top three most popular groups in Northumberland in a competition run by the Netmums.com

The group, which has been running for six years, meets every Monday at 9,30am during term time at the South Beach Scout Hut in South Beach Estate, Blyth.

Tiddlywinks received a winner’s certificate, a winner’s badge and a gold star listing on the Netmums.com sites.

Shirley, 45, from Cowpen Estate, Blyth, said: “The Netmums awards are like the parenting Oscars so we are delighted to have been selected in the top three.

“It is an award for everyone who attends my group and they should all be very proud.

“It is a pleasure to run this group just to see the children’s faces light up every week as we go on our adventure, seeing their confidence grow and social skills develop is a real pleasure.

“My little tiddlywinks are simply wonderful.”
