Durham city will once again be transformed for the Lumiere festival between Thursday 14th to Sunday 17th Novmber. Spectacular light shows and installations will take over the city and well I hope to help families make the most of this event.
After personally going to look at the 2011 festival I am so glad I knew about slings. The event was extemely busy and taking a pushchair for Henry (who was then 22 months) would have been a nightmare. Instead I choose to sling him and he avoided only seeing a mass of legs and I felt happier knowing he was safe.
The sling library is now much bigger than it was in 2011 (we were only 4 months old) so I feel it is possible for me to do more to help more parents be able to go buggy free and avoid their little ones only seeing people's knees. So what am I planning?
1) We currently have 124 slings and carriers for you to choose from
2) I have just ordered another preschool size Rose and Rebellon carrier
3) The lovely Sarah at Connecta Baby Carrier is sending us a box of goodies to borrow - how nice is that?
Monday 11th open house 10-2
Tuesday 12th open house 11-2
Wednesday 13th sling library drop in 10-12.30
Friday 15th 10-11.30 sling drop off from people who hired for Thursday night and open house.*
Slings hired for lumerie only can then be returned on Wednesday 20th from 2.30-4pm or by post to arrive on the morning of Thuraday 21st. Slings hired for 2 weeks would be due back on Wednesday 27th between 10-12.30.
* Slings hired on Friday 15th until next library session will be charged at £6 due to slightly shorter hire period.
