Why have we changed?

If you were a regular user of Family Friendly or Family Friendly Merseyside you might be wondering why we've changed.

In order to be sustainable and to continue to bring you the best in Family Friendly events we decided to focus on and develop our e-newsletter service. Although we no longer provide event listings don't worry you'll still receive plenty of information about Family Friendly activities happening in your area as long as you are signed-up to receive email updates from us.
