Welcome to NappyValleyNet. We're a new local community for mums and their young families in Richmond, Twickenham & Teddington. We have a big sister site in Wandsworth and Clapham that's been a huge hit with mums there so we're hoping that it works just as well for you too.

We're here to make your life easier by giving you the inside track on everything from top local schools, sports and activities to fabulous special offers and promotions. You can chat to other mums, share your tips and discover what everyone else is talking about. Need a nanny or au-pair? Simply post your free advert. Not sure which magician to book for a birthday bash? You'll find plenty of suggestions or just ask the other mums for their top tips.

And because NappyValleyNet is for you too, you'll find the name of the hottest hairdresser or the most relaxing café, plus the scoop on yoga classes, shopping, beauty therapists and family holidays.

But there is a problem. It can be controlled from … [Read More...]

Dear NappyValleyNetter, "One bloke." As part of the current "Get Mr NVN Fit" campaign I've been prodding him to take some exercise. The prodding turned to pushing until eventually he capitulated and agreed to take part in a class as long as I booked it for him, his view being that he shouldn't have to expend energy just to join a class when … [Read More...]
