Breastfeeding friendly

We are a breastfeeding friendly organisation.

The Leisure and Environment Committee decided on 20 September 2016 that the council would provide a welcoming, clean and comfortable environment for breastfeeding mums where the public have access to the Council's buildings.

Our Health Improvement Officer will work with Nottinghamshire County Council to identify and support local breastfeeding friendly places with the Newark and Sherwood district.

  • Are you a mum in Newark and Sherwood? 
  • Have you had a positive experience in a Newark and Sherwood business?
  • Do you think they would be a suitable candidate for our Breastfeeding Friendly scheme?

Yes? Then let us know by emailing Mel Coton with the name of the business, road name and area and we will get in touch to invite the business on board.

If you are a local business and would like to find out more about becoming involved, please contact Mel Coton, Health Improvement Officer on 01636 655 990 or
