NappyValleyNet Meet-up at Skylark, Stacks Property Surgery and The Affordable Art Fair: Your What’s On activity guide from NappyValleyNet

Last Updated on : 9th March 2017

Dear NappyValleyNetter, 

Welcome to your weekly What’s On activity guide from NappyValleyNet!

March. The time of spring flowers, mad March hares (the boxing variety not a common sight around here), 40 long days and nights without chocolate or crisps or, in some extreme cases, wine.  Replace these voids in your life with something different to really embrace the change of season and the challenge you have set yourself.  There’s plenty on offer out there and you’ll find it on our ever-expanding calendar.

If you’re considering a move, then start your search with us.  We have properties for sale and to rent brought to you by PrimeLocation and four local estate agents you’ll know well, with school catchment distances all mapped out.  …click here for more details
