New parenting network

A family focused business network has launched in the city to help SME’s reach their target market.

Wakefield Mumbler is an online community which supports families by providing relevant local information for free. At its core Mumbler is about supporting local families and bringing together parents and carers from across the district in the hope of creating a sense of community for families in Wakefield and a safe place to discuss all things about family-life.

Founder of Wakefield Mumbler, Heather Sweeney said: “I’m so excited to launch the Mumbler website and community in Wakefield. As a mum myself I know the daily challenges that parents face plus the added juggle of running a business. So I’m really passionate about making this a place where families can easily access the local information they need and to find a welcoming platform where they are free to ask for recommendations for groups, services, advice for family problems, ideas for days out and everything else in between. In turn supporting the local economy and showcasing the best businesses in the city.

“I hope Mumbler will take the stress out of family life for others in Wakefield, as it did for me as a new mum in Harrogate.”

The social media savvy mum-of-one who is from Barnsley also works part-time as a teacher as well as running her new Mumbler business, which is already proving popular. She said: “I’m so pleased with how quickly Mumbler is growing. I’m getting lots of great feedback and I hope every parent in the city will join us no matter what your situation.”

As part of Wakefield Mumbler Mrs Sweeney launched the business network group for businesses that are suited to a family market.
“I meet so many parents that have set up their own businesses or become franchisees in the hope of finding a way to balance family life with work. I created the business network to help support other parents like me.”
