Creating a home for the arts in the Chew Valley

The Scummy Mummies!

The fabulous Scummy Mummies returned to The Ring O'Bells in Compton Martin recently, and once again bought the house down. Ellie and Helen celebrate the scummier side of parenting, from drinking wine at teatime, to hiding from the PTA. They are sure to be back again, watch this space!
