Mumbler Success Stories

SJ Barker, Franchise owner of Ryedale Mumbler and also Scarborough & Whitby Mumbler.

As well as being a mum to two children, I live with a menagerie of animals – including horses, Ryeland Sheep and Giant African Land Snails – and have lived rurally most of my life.

It’s always been second nature to jump in the car and travel, but now I know my local area inside out, I know it doesn’t have to be this way – there are so many amazing things for families on our doorstep!

Previously I was an insurance risk control surveyor but when my children were born (Henry, 6 and Eliza, 4), I wanted something more flexible to fit in with family life.

Running Mumbler has been a huge change, but I’ve always been able to and happy to adapt, and I love helping families to make life easier.

Ryedale Mumbler has gone from strength so strength so when the opportunity arose to take on Scarborough & Whitby Mumbler, it made perfect sense.

Running the two sites fits in wonderfully with family life, and I am enthusiastic about helping other parents, carers and visitors find those hidden gems!
