Can I live on a £100k in Nappy Valley? Husband asks for trial separation. Best holiday company?
Last Updated on : 23rd March 2013
This week, as opposed to my usual opening, I want to start a little “off-topic”.
For quite a while NappyValleyNet has been trialling a new fundraising initiative for school PTAs.
It’s currently live with three schools and the results so far have been really encouraging.
We’re looking to take on three more PTAs as we grow, so if you think your school/PTA might be interested in raising some money, please do reply to this email.
It won’t cost your parents, your PTA or your school anything at all but as we can only take on a couple more at present, it’s a case of first come first served.
And now back to the usual email you know and love!
Here’s what you’ve been talking about on NappyValleyNet (Wandsworth!):
