We love our mums: Mother's Day

TREAT your mum this Mother's Day (10 March) with tea and cake in Stoke Newington, an Italian lunch and fine wine in Victoria Park Village or feed the ducks along Regent's Canal.

Rummaging in Chatsworth Road Market

Voted one of the top five places to hang out by Time Out, Sunday's Chatsworth Road Market offers a smorgasbord of art from east London designers, handmade ornaments, international dishes and fresh food sourced from UK producers. Show you care with cake - the greatest gift of all - at a stall or one of the many shops aligning the street such as Cakey Muto and Venetia's Coffee Shop.

Boutique shopping on Church Street

With its community feel, Stoke Newington Church Street is perfect for getting a personal touch in artisan or gourmet shops, international eateries or family pubs like The Daniel Defoe. Walk towards the Clissold Park and its country estate or stop for tea at The Tea Rooms, recently named by Evening Standard as one of the best cafes in London.

Sunday lunch in Victoria Park Village

Su Sazzagoni, The Empress of India and Spit Jack's offer Italian, Indian and Spanish food respectively, or have a traditional hearty Sunday lunch at Royal Inn on the Park. And to end the day for foodie mums, taste and adore wine from specialist shop Bottle Apostle then grab delectable meats from skilled butchers Ginger Pig.

Comedy at Hackney Empire

Roots, reggae and UK comedy night Touch of Class has a Mother's Day Special on 10 March at Hackney Empire. Performances on the night come from Curtis Walker from 1990s TV show The Real McCoy, Glenda Jaxson and Slim, with live music and lovers’ rock care of Sandra Cross and others. VIP booths come with a bottle of champagne and assorted cup cakes.

Bike riding in Green Flag parks

Outdoor-type mothers may enjoy biking around the Green Flag awarded parks in the borough. For a quick ride, pick up a Barclays Cycle Cycle Hire bike at Regents Row or Goldsmiths Row and take a family trip to Regents Canal - a home to swans, ducks and coots - then grab a snack in offbeat cafe Towpath.
