So long, Twickenham!

Jun 28, 2016 by

So long, farewell, auf wiedersehen, goodnight! Dear Twickenham, as fun as it has been to run this website, and our associated Facebook and Twitter feeds, the time has come for Twickermum to close up shop.

goodbyeDue to family and other work commitments, it’s becoming ever-harder to keep up with the rapid volume of editing and calendar maintenance that the site needs.  So we’d rather go out with a bang than a whimper.

(To quote Twickerdad, we’ve decided not to do that special Twickenham thing of “closing for refurbishment” – before turning into a charity shop!)

This site has always been a labour of love and we’d like to thank all of the brilliant contributors who sent us interesting, helpful and relevant guest articles.

Our zero advertising policy has given us great editorial freedom and we’ve been able to decline far more articles than we published. (You’ll have to take our word for it that Twickermum would have had a very different vibe if we’d published every guest article that wanted you to buy products, lose the baby fat, vote UKIP or hire a parenting consultant!)

For the time being, we’re leaving our archive of articles and local info up on the site for anyone to browse. We’re also still happy to help share local news and events using our Facebook and Twitter feeds.

If you miss the ‘What’s On’ calendar, we strongly recommend checking out For Sanity’s Sake instead – they continue to do a tireless and amazingly detailed job of compiling local events and activities on behalf of local families.

Should you wish to get in touch, for any reason, we’d be delighted to hear from you at

So long, and thanks (to Sandy’s) for all the fish!
