Welcome to your weekly What’s On activity guide from NappyValleyNet!
Loved the Vitamin D hit earlier this week. The blossom in full bloom, the skies blue, the commons busy (I sensed lots of working-from-home dog walks, exercise regimes and coffee strolls in the great outdoors). Spring is most definitely springing. Stay happy, keep healthy and look out for others who may need a hand (a bag of pasta here, a loo roll there). Nappy Valley has always been good at neighbourhood watch (read more).
Moving? We have all the properties available to buy and to rent in the neighbourhood together with school catchment zones all mapped out (read more).
For sale with John Thorogood is a chain-free 5-bedroom family home on a sought-after street within the catchment of both Honeywell and Belleville primaries, with an extended kitchen and sunny south-facing garden laid with decking and astro, and a fully-extended loft space (read more).
For sale with Portico is a spacious one-bedroom flat on the ground-floor of a Victorian conversion just a short walk to Tooting Bec and close to Wandsworth Common, a great investment opportunity with well-proportioned and completely refurbished living space and a private patio garden (read more).
For sale with Rampton Baseley is a 3-bedroom family home on a quiet residential street ‘Between the Commons’ and close to several good state and private schools, arranged over three floors with a great sense of light and space and concertina doors opening from the kitchen onto a decked garden (read more).
For rent with Marsh & Parsons is a 4-bedroom house in a prime position in Clapham Old Town, neutrally decorated and well-presented with a modern finish and a private garden, close to shops, transport and wide open spaces of Clapham Common (read more).
Given the current situation with coronavirus, Grand Designs Live has been postponed from May to August. If you already booked tickets via our ticket offer, they will still be valid for the new dates. If you haven’t booked yet and have a grand design of your own planned, then move your diary date and get booking! Weekday tickets are free and weekend tickets are just £10 when booked through us (read more).
Similarly, Women’s Enterprise Day next week has been postponed until later in the year. We’ll be sure to let you know when it’s back on. You can’t keep good women down (read more).
With women in mind, one date that must not be forgotten is Mother’s Day this Sunday! Even if it is destined to be a different Mother’s Day to normal and many of us may not be able to see the older generation, it’s still our day! Amelie’s Follie’s on Webb’s Road is right on our collective doorstep and very much open for business with mums in mind and vouchers and deliveries at the ready (read more).
Feeling cooped up? For now, the commons seem busy with people making the most of one of the lovely things about living around Nappy Valley – the great outdoors! If you want more than a stroll or a walk with the dog, or are looking for a break from home-working, Open Air Fit is running its weekly timetable designed for all the family (read more).
Talking of the commons, Skylark Café on Wandsworth Common is still open for business and in view of the current government guidelines they’re only selling take-out food – pop to the window on the small terrace! Keep on walking and keep on buying cake, coffee and all their delicious healthy food – it’s good for the heart and soul! (read more)
And Abbeville Road favourite, Bistro Union is to open as a community shop from Monday selling freshly cooked meals, handmade pasta, essentials and wine, and offering delivery to the elderly and vulnerable too. Brilliant idea! (read more)
Weekly Parish Coffee on Malwood Road is also changing its offering to the community and asking for donations of products for those who may need help navigating the weeks to come. They’ll be open for daily drop-offs (read more).
And BreezeTech can help you with all your home-working needs, whether that’s now working from home for the foreseeable future or children managing their school work online. They can help you set up your tech remotely and are offering an amazing discount on their service (read more).
