Nanny / Au Pair Holiday Pay

Last Updated on : 13th May 2019
Nanny Pay


Dear NappyValleyNetter,

As I mentioned last week, we’re turning TEN this year and celebrating with some brand new awards.

Imagine The Oscars twinned with The Booker Prize and you’d be totally on the wrong track, but ours are still going to be wonderful.

The only fly in the ointment is that Mr NappyValleyNet is already manically giggling about his planned wardrobe malfunction on the award’s night red carpet.

This is, actually, OK as we won’t have a carpet (red or otherwise) or even an awards ceremony, but we’d still love your votes as we’ll be broadcasting the results in the very near future via our emails, website and social media.

So click here to nominate your favourite local business whilst I fetch the dressmakers tape my husband is asking for…


Here is what you’ve been talking about this week on NappyValleyNet…
