I formed this group in early 2014 after a chat with a now friend on the BCA Facebook page about wanting to find a local mom’s play group. This is the first “Moms of…” local, community based Facebook mom’s group in Johannesburg, South Africa. It’s a Facebook community for local moms to be open and support each other. It’s a forum, a market-place and a sounding board. Since starting it, I’ve made so many wonderful friends, had book clubs, craft clubs, walking groups, play dates – it’s really changed my life for the better because of it.

To join, all you need to be is a mom, living in Blairgowrie.

Here are some other rules…

  1. It’s for Blairgowrie residents only – and only one per mom. You’re only a local resident in one suburb. Apologies, if your kids go to local schools but you aren’t a resident, you don’t qualify.
  2. Moms and moms to be only (sorry no grandparents and aunts and cousins)
  3. Please ensure you’re on the BCA database by signing up to the Blairgowrie newsletter
  4. Your kids need to still be in school (i.e. under 18)
  5. Answer all 3 questions to be added (truthfully)
  6. Advertising:
    1. Advertise your second-hand baby goods any day of the week, other goods within moderation
    2. No scouting for work, properties or fitness shake type ads
    3. Keep your business advertising to Fridays only and please keep it reasonable
    4. We don’t want to see the same advert every week and we don’t want to be bombarded with more than one post from you on a Friday
    5. Support your local moms
  7. No abuse, shaming, bitchiness, labelling, defamation of character
  8. No anti vaccination talk (sorry, just no)
  9. If you ask to join another moms group and you have moved, or live outside of the local area, you will be removed/added to the correct group
  10. Don’t lie about where you live. If you’re not local, please start up your own mom’s group, I’m sure there are local moms out there who want a community just as much as you do.
