Real Nappy Week 2011. Share the secret!

8 May

Real Nappy Week is w/c 16th May and this year the theme is ‘Share the secret!’  Cloth nappy users from all over the country are being encouraged to share the benefits of real nappies with friends and family to try and persuade more people to use cloth.  There will be events taking place nationwide such as nappuchinos, nappy fashion shows and of course The Great Nappy Giveaway.

We’ll be taking part in Real Nappy Week again this year and will be at two local events showing some nappies and explaining the benefits to new and expectant parents.  We also want to do our bit to encourage people to ‘share the secret’, so with this in mind we are offering a fantastic competition!

The lovely Fiona at Coombe Mill farm has offered a free family holiday for 4 people in one of their properties in Cornwall.  She’s also providing some cloth nappies for you to use while you are there so that you don’t have to pack your stash of nappies and take them with you!  If you haven’t tried using cloth nappies on your baby but want to try them out, this could be the ideal opportunity.

Originally a 16th Century Cornish water-mill, Coombe Mill is now a beautiful hamlet of picturesque holiday cottages and lodges set in an idyllic private estate between Bodmin Moor and the Beach. Family run by parents who understand the needs of tiny tots and their parents, Coombe Mill is a magical self catering holiday.

It’s all aboard the tractor with farm rides to help feed the animals under the watchful eye of farmer Nick. A safe and supervised outdoor experience the children will cherish. Watch them learn and grow confidence on the working farm, no baby too young or grandparent too old! The joys of collecting your own eggs, petting and feeding pigmy goats, baby lambs, miniature donkey’s and much more is both fun and educational. With indoor and outdoor play areas and 30 acres to explore there is plenty to keep young minds busy by day and sleeping by night!

Entering the competition is really easy.  Just answer the following question and email your answer to, along with your name, address and telephone number. Please put the subject header as ‘RNW competition’

Question:  What happens 6 days per week at 9.00 am with Farmer Nick?
