Last Updated on : 25th March 2013
Dear South West London Mum,
NappyValleyNet has just hit 7000 Twitter followers (click here).
To celebrate we’ve teamed up with the wonderful Dee Light Bakery (click here) to spoil *ten* of you with their gorgeous coffee or cake!
All you have to do is walk into their fabby Ritherdon Bakery and say “NappyValleyNet has hit 7000 followers, I claim my free cake!”
Obviously if you don’t like cake, feel free to swap it for a coffee instead.
We’ve put enough behind the till for *ten* NappyValleyNetters so be quick, when it’s gone it’s gone!
Thank you to everyone for your support and look out for our giveaway when we hit 8000!
