Any other local tips?: Dorking is a great place to meet mums. There are so many baby and toddler groups around. Because of our busy schedule we don't get to go to half of them but they are all fantastic.

Dorking is the perfect place for finding wonderful walks. It is an area of outstanding beauty so you will often find that mums are keen to get out and walk come spring and summer time.
