Last Updated on : 23rd February 2017

Dear NappyValleyNetter,

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

Smiles are slightly broader this week as colourful crocuses pop through grass, temperatures rise and the sun peeks out (occasionally) giving us all a much-needed Vitamin D boost.  While spring is busy springing keep one eye on our calendar, not just to be up-to-date with the latest goings-on but also for posting your own events, classes, fairs, performances and protests. We’ll help you spread the word. No #fakenews here. (click here)
