Open House


Meet other members in their own homes. This is a friendly, informal way of getting to know people on your own doorstep. Open houses can take the form of coffee mornings/playdates, home-based activity sessions, trips to the park or other local attractions, trips to other non-135 playgroups, or even outings further afield. In the past, we've had trips to the fire station, visits to the Bunny Park for a meet & greet with the animals, scooter picnics at the Gurnell skate-park, story sessions, playdough making, craft afternoons, baking, gardening and plenty of good old-fashioned playdates.

Open houses aren't just for the kids either. Members have hosted all sorts of evening activities, from dinners out to Swish parties, trunk shows for clothing brands, jewellery and make-up, knit nights, decoupage evenings and spa nights. You name it, we've done it.

You never know what will pop up in the diary so check it out as soon as your newsletter arrives and be sure to mark up your calendar.

If you've never been to one of our open houses before, take a look at this fun What to Expect of an Open House, written by a former rep and Ealing 135 enthusiast, Anne, which first featured in our newsletter in 2012.

And if you think you can't host an open house, think again - as Lynda explained in a 2013 newsletter, it couldn't be easier.
