About Us

This site was set up in 2002 by Geraldine Lane MBE following the success of her book A Parents Guide to Plymouth, which was available in four editions between 1983 and 2006.

It has been re-designed and updated but still operates on the basis that it should be a one stop shop for parents and carers searching for family friendly information, capsule events and destinations in the area, and is free of any subscription charge.

As the website is now owned and managed by Routeways Centre Ltd, a Plymouth charity based in Devonport, we have to find a way to fund the website to ensure its continuation.  As such,  we have decided to accept advertising.

Local businesses will find that the charges are very reasonable (from as little as £10 per month for an annual package), and there are a number of options to suit the sole trader, the “sme” or the larger organisation.

If you have a relevant site and wish to have a link from this site to your own site please make contact by e-mail.

Finally, we send out a fortnightly newsletter which contains details of all the events we know about which will take place over the next two weeks.  If you would like to be on the mailing list, there is a form at the bottom of the homepage.
