Organisers, St Edmundsbaby, are a support network for all things baby-related for parents in the Bury St Edmunds Area and give ideas from their experiences as first-time parents about toys, books and recipes to help those that are starting out.

Organiser Steph Holland said: “I set it up as there are so many amazing people in the industry doing great things and I felt they needed a platform here in Bury.

“It also gives people a chance to see varied options in picking something like photographers or getting hands on with some of the clubs and groups.”

They included Little Explorers Sensory, from Culford Village Hall, who promote sensory play for babies, and Clubhouse Kids who run weekly groups which can range from messy play to arts and crafts.
