Dulwich Picture Gallery gardens and café re-open and BusyLizzy Live

Dear NappyValleyNetter

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

Some have broken up already, some have only just gone back, some never went back, and some have a couple of weeks to go. Whichever way you look at it, school’s nearly out. Roll on their return in September but let’s not wish away the summer – fully embrace it! With all our lockdown practice we’re quite good at relaxing at home but love being out too. Camps are on, commons are open, inspiration is at your fingertips (read more).

If you’re considering a move, take a look at our property pages which have all the homes for sale and to rent in the area via PrimeLocation and four local estate agents you’ll know well. Search via price, postcode or the all-important school catchment areas (read more).

 

Take a look at these homes from our Preferred Property Partners

Summertime fun

Sunshine pretty much guaranteed in the Alps and where better than Camp Suisse, filled with the sound of children’s laughter after lockdown.
