  • positive review  I would 100% recommend joining MyLifepool to mummies and daddies whether this is your first baby or you already have children. Without MyLifepool, I think my maternity leave could have been lonely at times. Instead, Vic organises some fantastic meet ups and ladies/daddies evenings. I have met some amazing friends and inspirational ladies who have supported my new mummy journey and have made my maternity leave a busy, fun filled experience where I have made memories that will last a lifetime. If you would like to join but worry about not knowing anyone don't hesitate to contact Vic, me or one of the other Lifepool members who will meet you at events, introduce you to people and and make you feel welcome. Not to mention the amazing discounts! X

    positive review  I met Vic when I first moved to Harrogate with my children, then aged one and three, and went along to Little Peeps toddler group. I felt so lucky to have met such a warm and friendly person in my first weeks here! She really helped me break the ice with the other mums, some of whom are still good friends. We gradually got to know one another but it wasn’t until a few years later, when we were both emerging from rather tough times, that we really bonded over a community event that we put on together, ‘Wonderful Windows’. This event sparked the idea for a community group running free events for local people, to help strengthen the community – and Oatlands Community Group was born. It has been amazing to me to see the passion, energy and drive Vic has put into this group, giving freely of her time to so many people; she does this because she is so committed to her community and to connecting people from all ages and backgrounds, especially tackling issues of isolation and loneliness. It sometimes feels as though Vic is on a mission to spread her natural warmth and friendliness around Oatlands and beyond – yet she makes sure other people are able to get involved and use their talents to their best ability too. It is lovely to see her combining her values and energy with her new venture, MyLifePool, for a new generation of families to benefit from her kindness and support.

    positive review  My life Pool is an amazing group that focuses on mums like me that need a bit of help keeping their identity and generally giving support. Vic is so attentive and goes above and beyond to make every single member feel welcome and valued, and you really feel as though you are a part of something. Motherhood can be quite a lonely time, if you make an effort to join anything, this is the one to join! There is such an interesting selection of meetups, something for everyone. (the local discounts are so great too!!)

  • positive review  Me and my little girl look forward to the #mylifepool meet ups at first I was a really shy ,low confident etc person and with the help of Victoria Smith-Dunn and the wonderful people and babies ive met through being a member has really helped me come out of my shell. Tbh I dont know where I would be without some of you guys and these groups probably stuck in 4 walls pulling my hair out!! I really recommend this to anyone out there you wont regret it I know I definitely dont !!! They are not only my friends now I can call them our family !! We love #mylifepool xxxx

  • positive review  Signing up to MyLifePool was probably one of the best things I've done. It is a fantastic way to get out of the house with baby and meet other parents in the same boat! It's such a friendly community with some fantastic little meet ups! Highly recommend joining.

    positive review  Today I went swimming with my wife and baby boy at Nuffield gym Harrogate. This was organised through myLifePool. People may think that activities in this group are solely aimed at mums but I can assure you they aren’t. I was made to feel very welcome and felt totally at ease. As a father it’s difficult to find things to do with your baby/child so if you get the chance,be it with your partner or on your own do go along as you won’t be made to feel out of place.

    positive review  Second visit to a meet up today - really enjoyed ourselves. Love the fact you can be spontaneous and drop in one week and not the next and meet new mummies! There is always so much to do as well!

    positive review  MyLifepool is a fantastic way of not only trying new things but saving lots of money! My partner and I have just had a fantastic breakfast at Fodder and saved £10.00 off our bill. You'd be mad not to pay £1 a week to get savings like that 😉

  • positive review  I have been a member of myLifePool for just over 2 months and I’m so pleased I joined. It can be quite daunting being a new mum and also quite lonely with other family and friends being at work, you can find yourself stuck at home staring at the same 4 walls. I’m not very confident in new situations and always felt a bit awkward just turning up to some of the meet ups not knowing anybody but whenever I have been, the other mums have always been very welcoming and I have really enjoyed them. It’s nice to get out, meet other mums and also get advice and support on anything mum related (or probably not even mum related things 😊) I’ve met some really nice people and the discounts offered are great. They make things that little bit more affordable. I’d recommend joining to anyone 😊

    5 star review  A great resource for parents and families in Harrogate. Vic is constantly evolving to members needs and requests helping new mums and families. My life pool has helped us find childcare, friends and even a discount for a much needed spa day! The app is great 👍x

    5 star review  I joined MyLifePool after moving to Harrogate a year ago with my 3 pre-school age children. I didn’t know anyone in the area so it has been a lovely community to meet people. It’s been an absolute god-send over the long summer holidays with all the activities and meet-ups! Also - who is going to argue with a Rudding Park discount!

  • positive review  MyLifepool is such a great concept...the discounts are varied and really useful. But it's so much more than that - the original aim was to help build a community and to foster friendships. By organising regular meet-ups and courses, MyLifepool has something for everyone. Plus, I LOVE the fact that it recognises that Dads are parents too - my husband went on one of the Dad's meet-ups and really enjoyed it. I tell everyone I meet about MyLifepool

    positive review  Vic has been a very good friend of mine for 15 years. She is one of the most loyal and trustworthy people I know. Her enthusiasm and passion for community and people and their wellbeing is commendable. Vic has used all of these qualities to create MLP. It’s a brilliant way to bring people together, support each other, get friendly advise and have fun. The discounts are an added bonus!

  • 5 star review  A great way to find local support as a new parent or as someone new to the area, whether your children are babies or school age. Vic has more than twenty years of parenting experience and she’s used this to create an amazing resource for local families. On top of that, MyLifePool offers a huge range of discounts with local businesses so you get your membership costs back in no time!

    5 star review  My life pool has been great for me and the kids. Especially with the summer holidays and very few groups running. We’ve been to some great meet ups for the kids and also some much needed ‘hump’ day cocktails with the mums. Not to mention the money Iv saved at cafes and soft plays along the way! Vic is a fantastic support and her dedication to the community is amazing �

 More than social media

it’s a lifestyle

We are your first steps into a supportive community putting you in touch with like minded parents, social events, courses and much more.

“There is an African proverb stating that it takes a village to raise a child. The problem is that in today’s society, with families often living miles apart, parents can feel isolated and lost. This is where social media can make a real difference: myLifePool can provide a virtual village, helping people meet other parents both on line and in real life. I only wish it had been around when I had my daughters!”
