Real Nappies Event on Saturday!

Lewisham’s next nappy event takes place on Saturday (November 16th) at Wearside Service Centre, Wearside Road, Ladywell SE13 7EZ, 2pm to 4pm.

Come along to find out how using real nappies could save you money and help the environment. You can also get a free £20 voucher at the event, which you can put towards the cost of buying some real nappies or accessories.

And the first person through the door on Saturday will win the nappy of their choice!

Real Nappy

So why not get involved with the real nappy revolution! By the time a baby is potty trained they will have worn 4000 – 6000 nappies. Using real, washable nappies rather than disposables can save hundreds of pounds and reduce the amount of rubbish going into your refuse bin.

Saving money

8 million disposable nappies are thrown away every day in the UK, on top of this the Real Nappy Association has calculated that savings from using Real Nappies for a first child alone can amount to £600.

You’ll be able to find out more at the event and if you’re a Lewisham resident, you can claim a free £20 voucher towards the cost of ‘Real’ cloth nappies. (Baby needs to be 18-months old or younger. Proof of pregnancy/ baby’s birth certificate needed, along with proof of address.)

There is another event later in November, on Friday 29th at Manor House Library,  34 Old Road, Lee, SE13 5SY in the Baring Room, 10 am to 12 noon

Tea, coffee and biscuits also provided at all events!
