AboutHarrogate Mama

Lucy Playford and her family

Having lived in Harrogate all my life and been A Stay At Home Mama for the last nine of them, I decided to set up this blog to share what’s great locally for parents and their families.

I know first-hand that real parenting is tough, even when you live in the happiest place in the UK, this blog shares some of my highs and lows in an aim to keep you company on your parenting journey.

Local independent businesses are at the heart of what makes Harrogate great and as a community they support local parents and their little ones in all sorts of guises. The Harrogate Advertiser wrote a full page article all about me and my blog and how we as families can support them.

By sharing my blog with you I hope you feel more engaged in Harrogate and you enjoy discovering new people and places to help you whilst you do the most important job you’ll ever do, raise a family. You’re doing great 😊


Lucy Playford – Harrogate Mama

I’m Lucy. I’ve lived in Harrogate all my life. I love my town. I live here with my husband, twin girls (10) and the small boy (4).

Before working for a living, raising my family, I used to get paid (using my BA Hons degree) to do marketing, PR and event type things in Yorkshire and London.

I can often be found checking out a coffee bar, pushing the small boy on the swings, dashing to the school run, blogging, driving three small people around town to some activity or other, catching up on a box set, having the odd night out with like-minded Mamas, baking, taking a trip to an outdoorsy place, bobbing for a spot of shopping 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.

  1. Hi Lucy

    I love reading your Blogg especially as I have 3 children and I live in Harrogate!
    I am looking dor a little help. O want to set up my own Blog, dont worry it is nothing like yours but about fashion, lifestyle and shoes ( a particular passion of mine) but i dont know how to set it up.

    I was wondering ( desperatley praying) if you could spend a little time with me and maybe talk through it, who takes your photos, how to select a platform to set up on ( I was looking at WordPress?) etc I have several pieces already written and ready to go!

    Please contact me via email or telephone.

    Kind Regards
    Raj Sanghera
