Baby show heads north


TWO Lancaster-based businesses which have held baby and toddler shows several times on Morecambe over the last two years are building on their success by taking the concept further afield.

Claire Johnson of The Baby Maze and Rachel Gibson of Quay Creative, both local mums with children under five, are organising the first shows of their kind in Barrow and Kendal.

Run by Claire, is a popular website for expectant parents and families with young children, while Quay Creative specialises in business communications.

The site offers guidance for parents including information about antenatal classes, baby and toddler groups, independent shops and local events.

Claire said: “Rachel and I organised our first baby and toddler show in May 2009 and have run another three very successful events.

“Having seen how popular the shows have been, we recognised the potential for a baby show in other areas that would tap into this exposure and bring local businesses together with local parents.”
