“Helping you make the most of life in Berkshire and beyond”

Jodie – Maidenhead Mum

Hi, thanks for visiting ‘Maidenhead Mum’

Whether you already live in Maidenhead and want to find out more, or are considering moving here, I hope this website helps you make the most of your life here in Maidenhead.

I moved to Maidenhead from London in 2009, got married, bought a house, had two children and now run my own award winning marketing business part-time around school hours. It’s been a busy time and not without it’s challenges!

I can remember being worried about making a permanent move to Maidenhead and not knowing anyone. Would I miss my friends and miss out on the London experiences that I loved? What kind of lifestyle would I have here? Would I fulfil my own ambitions around the needs of my family?

I started this blog just after my daughter was born in 2012 and it has been a way to share the experiences and insights that I have learned along the way as well as supporting the fabulous community here. I live a happy life here and I hope that by sharing my experiences I can inspire you to make the most of your life in Maidenhead, whatever shape that may take.
