Last Updated on : 20th October 2016

Dear NappyValleyNetter, 

Welcome to your weekly What’s On activity guide from NappyValleyNet!

Busy, busy, busy.  Half term, Harvest Festival, Halloween, fireworks, fun and frolics, and revision for many.  Wherever you’re at, and wherever you are this week or next, then our calendar can help you plan – either for last minute day-to-day inspiration or looking ahead to make sure you don’t miss a trick (or treat). Keep it close at hand and keep on posting if you’re busy with things you’d like others to know about too. (click here)

We also do property.  Homes for sale or to rent in the neighbourhood and you can search by school catchment should education, education, education be on your radar… (click here)
