Mush believes mums have more fun together, so it is inviting all mums and their children along to the country centre, with a special free entry offer.

Lucy Jackson, from the app, said: “A recent survey commissioned by Mush found that 60 per cent of mums go a full day without adult interaction and 50 per cent find it hard to make local friends.

“We are organising the free event to try to put a stop to these statistics.

“Being a mum can be a lonely time so the meet up is about bringing mums in the Worthing area together so that we can have fun, support each other and put an end to social isolation.

“I hope this is the first of many Mush meet ups in Worthing.”

The meet up will be held on Tuesday from 10am to midday.

Ferring Country Centre, in Rife Way, Ferring, has a garden centre, café and small animals farm.

Visitors can meet the horses and other farm animals, walk the nature trail and picnic in the grounds.

Admission to the small animals farm is normally £3 per person, with under-ones going free.

Sam Kirk, office co-ordinator at Ferring Country Centre, said: “We are delighted to be able to host the Mush meet up.

“Our farm, café and garden centre are the perfect place for mums to meet up with their little ones, there really is something for everyone here.

“Every mum who attends the meet up will receive free entry on the day and mums who are registered with the app will benefit from an ongoing free pass for all adults at Ferring Country Centre.”
