Two Sunderland mums have had such success with their website SunderlandParents they've now launched NewcastleParents to meet demand. The sites include diaries of events and all the information needed to plan a day out.
Kelly Belmont and Laura Middleton found they received so many emails from people in Newcastle asking for a similar site that they set up their second website after just three months. They hope to launch a Durham site soon and expand to cover the whole of the North East.
