Your What’s On activity guide from NappyValleyNet!

Last Updated on : 14th January 2022

Dear NappyValleyNetter,

Welcome to your weekly What’s On from NappyValleyNet!

When the alarm blares at 0630 hours, it really does feel like the deepest, darkest part of the night. I always forget this bit, so overexcited am I by the ever-so-slightly longer days and the knowledge that every day will be longer and lighter still. On the plus side, sunrises can be spectacular, and the fresh weeks ahead have 2022 at the end of them – surely an improvement on 2020 and 2021. Talking of dates, here’s our What’s On calendar (read more).

On the move? Start your search on our property pages which have all the homes for sale and to rent in the neighbourhood – you can search via primary school as well as postcode and price (read more).

Take a look at these four homes from our Preferred Property Partners

For sale with John Thorogood is a 4-bedroom Victorian family house just off Battersea Rise and close to Northcote Road, Clapham Common and Clapham Junction, beautifully refurbished and extended into the side return and the loft, on the market with no chain (read more).

For rent with Portico is a 3-bedroom period family house on a quiet residential street close to Northcote Road and Wandsworth Common, bright and airy throughout with good proportions, an eat-in kitchen, off-street parking and a large private garden (read more).

For sale with Marsh & Parsons is a semi-detached 5-bedroom family house of 2,800 sq ft in Streatham Hill with three floors of accommodation retaining many original features, plus an open-plan kitchen breakfast room opening onto a 67ft south-west-facing garden, and off-street parking (read more).

For sale with Rampton Baseley is a 4-bedroom semi-detached Edwardian end-of-terrace family home on a wider than average plot with plenty of original features and extended into the loft and side return, just a stone’s throw from Clapham Common, Northcote Road and many popular schools (read more).

A fresh start

Start 2022 off on the right foot. If you’re a local business with an interest in all things health, fitness and wellbeing, do get in touch to get involved in our feature on NappyValleyNet Wellness & Wellbeing 2022.

Polka Youth Theatre offers an amazing opportunity for nine to 12-year-olds to work with leading theatre professionals and receive expert drama training in weekly sessions where children explore improvisation, role play, characterisation and performance skills. Next stop, theatreland! (read more)

Let’s Act invites children from age four upwards to a free trial of their weekly musical theatre or LAMDA classes which help to build their confidence and let their individuality shine! (read more)

If you have a child preparing for the 11+, you may want to sign them up to the Exceptional Academic’s Saturday School. Current Year 5s can join at any point in the term – it’s at Belleville Primary each weekend (read more).

Never stop learning

Head to Four Sides London on Sunday for a morning Mini Retreat for Mums with Reformer and mat Pilates, nutritious snacks, strength and conditioning and expert workshops. You had me at snacks (read more).

Join Elaine Halligan of The Parent Practice this evening for a free online Busting the Resilience Myth Webinar. All children will fail at some point in their lives and there will always be change, so in order for them to cope they need to be resilient. Is it nature or nurture? How to grow resilience? Tune in to find out (read more).

Or if you’d like to find a different approach to your parenting style in moments of stress, then The Parent Team’s Finding a Calmer Parenting Style could be for you with guidance on how to respond better when your child’s behaviour isn’t quite what you’d hoped (read more).

Kew Gardens has just introduced a new £1 ticket price for those on Universal or Pension Credit, plus it has reduced the ticket prices when booking in advance – or on the day for Young Persons or Child tickets.

That’s it – whatever you do, have fun!
