Other mums tell me to sack my au-pair. School crossing guard hit by car. Christmas lights in Nappy Valley: the big switch on!

Last Updated on : 4th December 2012

Dear South West London Mum,

Did you watch the Olympic opening ceremony?Christmas lights in Nappy Valley

We can”t promise you the Queen leaping out of a helicopter and landing on Battersea Rise, but on the 29th of November The Northcote Road Christmas Lights will be switched on and we”d love to see you there.

Daniel Craig might even turn up, although I have to be honest and say that he probably won”t!

They”ll be carols from the Honeywell choir, a gorgeous Santa”s Grotto, the cast members of the BAC”s “Midnight”s Pumpkin” plus face painting mulled wine, mince pies and lots more. And if you have a Christmas event or opening ceremony that you”d like NappyValleyNet to mention please don”t forget to post on the site and tell our thirty five thousand mums all about it!

This is what you”ve been talking about on NappyValleyNet (Wandsworth!):
