If any of these statements describe you, than come to the Slingmeets!
The first Friday of the month, from 10am until 12pm at the Southern Cross. And the second Monday of the month from 10am until 12pm at the Petone Depot.
Wellington Slingmeets are held in the guest room at The Southern Cross, which is located at 39 Abel Smith St, at the top of Cuba Street. There is plenty of ($3 per hour) parking on the Streets surrounding the Southern Cross.
All welcome: mums, dads, caregivers, parents to be, babies, toddlers and their supportive friends and family. Please feel free to invite anybody you think may be interested. You do not have to be a baby wearer to attend slingmeets either!
The City meet’s are free. Thanks to the kindness of the Southern Cross in providing us with free venues for slingmeets we don’t have to charge you a thing. Please bring a gold coin koha if you’re coming along to the Petone meets.
A note about food and drink
We encourage slingmeet attendees to support the Southern Cross by partaking in their delicious food and beverages. With so many small children in attendance, we have some guidelines to keep your children and your morning tea out of harm’s way. We ask that you keep your food and drink to the raised booths as anything on low tables may be subject to the depredations of toddlers and those learning to walk. As well as allowing you to enjoy your food and drink yourself, this should help the Southern Cross staff by reducing mess and breakages and keep children safe from scalding and unintentional exposure to things they may have allergies to.
