Established in 2006, What's On 4 Ltd was founded by Sam Willoughby with the launch of www.whatson4littleones.co.uk, followed by www.whatson4schoolkids.co.uk and www.whatson4kidsparties.co.uk in 2008.
All 3 websites provide parents with a unique source of local information and supporting advice and ideas.
Sam was named Practical Parenting magazine's Business Parent of the Year in 2007 and the business and websites also boast several other awards.
www.mumandworking.co.uk is an established website we purchased in July 2009. mumandworking provides advice and information to working mums and business mums with details of opportunities with flexible family-friendly companies. Our business was founded on the principle of flexible working and we're proud that our whole What's On 4 team work on this basis.
Our websites attract over 50,000 visitors from across the UK every month (as at March 2010 with growth projected at 50% within the next 12 months to 60,000 visitors a month) and over 23,000 subscribers to the newsletters, including nearly 4000 small businesses.
That's well over 1.5 million page views a year!
The business and websites are featured regularly in national publications and local and regional media.
Much of this success is down the award schemes run by the websites to recognise the best activities for children across the UK.
What's On 4 2010 awards launched in January 2010 and is the 4th year of the awards programme. These awards are supported by Prima Baby & Pregnancy magazine and the winners will be announced at an awards ceremony at the Brighton Baby Expo in June 2010 hosted by Mister Maker from CBEEBIES.
There are 13 awards recognising the amazing individuals that work so hard to provide fantastic activities for children of all ages. From baby & toddler groups, volunteers, commercial groups and the uniformed groups, they are all recognised!
In 2009 we have had over 1500 nominations and over 14,000 votes (more than 3 times more than 2008). So we predict that in 2010 there will be atleast 30,000 votes cast!
Just some of the titles we have received coverage on The Times, Daily Record, Mother & Baby magazine, Practical Parenting magazine, Prima Baby & Pregnancy magazine, I'm Pregnant magazine, Pregnancy, Baby and You, Your Family magazine, My Child magazine, Nursery World and Real People magazine. See our news pages for more.
Building on the success of our What's On 4 awards we are introducing a new awards scheme to recognise working parents, flexible employers and parents in business.
We are delighted to have Sarah Beeny supporting us and looking forward to meeting her at the awards ceremony at beautiful Hilton St Anne's Manor near Bracknell on 4th November 2010.
We're very excited about our awards as we know first hand the challenges of parenthood, running a business and working brings.
We meet amazing individuals everyday that are proving that flexible, family-friendly business does work and we want to applaud the people and companies that are making this happen.
Our 2010 awards will receive significant publicity across all our websites including:
O Copy on our newsletters reaching over 23,000 subscribers. See an example
