Dyslexia and the 11+ Webinar

Dyslexia and the 11+ Webinar

 

Dear NappyValleyNetter, 

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

As we edge towards early July at a safe distance from friends and with a rug tucked under our arm, we all wonder what the summer holds. Staycations are on (yay!) but when can we go away without the prospect of quarantine (quarantini, anyone)? For children at least, many summer clubs are ON and bookings are fast and furious. Keep sharing and we’ll keep spreading the news, and if it’s looking like a long summer ahead, tap here for inspiration (read more).

Lockdown prompted a move? If so, our property pages have all the homes for sale and to rent in the area with our estate agent partners offering virtual valuations and tours. Search by postcode or by school catchment area and all the available homes will come to you (read more).

 

Take a look at these homes from our Preferred Property Partners
