Real Nappy Week 2016
We are making some great progress for out nappy events being held during Real Nappy Weel (18th-24th April 2016)
If you would like to donate a raffle prize to us we would be grateful! We are hoping to raise £200 this year to help cover insurance, and to update our kits.
Please contact us if you can help!
This month we have been working on introducing more regular meet ups. Something we have been trying to plan and do for a while. We are lucky that we have the choice of 3 venues.
The summer holidays have always been busy for Nic and I with 6 boys between us, we do struggle sometimes to fit the library into our day.
So we have introduced an "Social nappy meet" these meets are purely social, we do not bring any demo nappies with us. Everyone is welcome to come along and meet each other, and if you are new to cloth nappies then i am sure between us we will have a selection of nappies for you to look at. These meets are all children friendly, and 9/10 will be in a child friendly location.
So over the summer we have planned;
Wednesday 22nd July (Social meet) - Big Sky - 10.30 on wards. There is an entrance fee for big sky and we would be based in the Toddler area.
Wednesday 5th August (Social meet) - Paddling pool at Central Park - 11.15 am - Central park is free, and car parking is free too. Parking is non restricted after 11am around the edges of the park.
Tuesday 11th August - Community space @ Tesco Hampton - 10-12 - This is our normal meet and demo nappies will be available to look at.
