Dear NappyValleyNetter, 

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

So the holidays have arrived.  Easter is still some way off but never mind.  The time for eating (more) chocolate (than usual) is here.  Unless you gave it up for Lent, in which case there’s still some way to go.  Meanwhile, it’s just as well the days are getting longer and a little brighter as there’s so much to fit in and you’ll find it on our action-packed calendar.  This week, because we like to help make your life that little bit easier, we’ve done a bumper round-up of Easter holiday fun. Enjoy! …click here for more details
