I know first-hand that being a Mama is full-on, the juggle-struggle never lets up and the parenting hustle has as many highs as lows. So I set up Harrogate Mama to champion Team Grown-Up, share what real-parenting is like and provide a little inspiration for savvy Mamas, since we’re all doing our best to conquer parenthood!
Having lived in Harrogate all my life, I know it inside out and I love living here! This site was created with modern Mamas like you in mind; as a great place to find out what’s going on locally for families and aims to be your go-to guide for finding perfect family things to do and places to go with the Smalls.
By sharing my blog I hope you’ll discover new brands, businesses and services to enjoy whilst you do the most important job you’ll ever do, raise a family. Trust me, you’re doing great!
I’m Lucy. I’ve lived in Harrogate all my life. I love my town. I live here with my husband, twin girls (16) and the small boy (10).
I started my working career in PR for Orange working on national UK campaigns. A move into event management for a government agency saw me deliver events at high profile government venues including No. 10 Downing Street and the House of Commons.
During time out to raise my family I founded this lifestyle blog about living in Harrogate, and seven years later I continue to enjoy working with brands from small independents to household names.
I currently work as a marketing manager for two charities across North Yorkshire and the Humber region.
When I’m away from my laptop I can often be found checking out a coffee shop, taking the small boy to the park, dashing to the school run, providing a taxi service to my children around town, catching up on the latest streaming hit, having the occasional night out with like-minded Mamas, baking, taking a trip to an outdoorsy place, bobbing for a spot of shopping or lunch in town and will usually, always be found in Harrogate.
If you’re interested in working with me I’d love to hear from you.
