Reusable Nappy Demo @ The Fixagon
Jun 17 @ 10:00 am – 11:00 am
Join us IN PERSON to find out all you need to know about reusable nappies. Whether you are pregnant and wondering where to start or you have a little one and are considering using reusable nappies, or you have started and need help, we are here for you!
VENUE : THE FIXAGON is a super cool and spacious new vegan cafe and events space right next to Shoreditch Park, in the south of Hackney.  It is very easily accessible by bike, or by bus routes 394 from Homerton or Hackney Central, or the 76 or 141 from Stoke Newington.  They are very generously hosting us so if you are able to, please consider supporting them by having a drink or snack while you listen!
The demo will start at 10am. It will last approximately 40 minutes and we will explain the different types of reusable nappy, how to use, store, wash, with a Q+A at the end.  Joy from www.nappyeverafter.co.uk will also be on hand with a pop-up shop where you can spend your voucher and/or sign up to their nappy laundry service.  Brands stocked include BumGenius, Thirsties wraps, Disana, Totsbots, and their own brand organic cotton prefolds.
We have recently joined forces with Mel who runs Wrap a Hug Sling Library, to provide a joint event together!  Double the help from the one journey, woop!
Mel will bring her sling library and do a newborn sling demo from 11am, so perfect if you are expecting or already have a newborn and want to get some general tips or specific help, or get your sling hire sorted for your little one.
No need to book.  All welcome! **Please do not attend if you have any COVID-19 symptoms or have been in close contact with a confirmed case.**
Hackney parents (pregnant or with a child under 18months) can claim their FREE £54 nappy voucher on the day or online from www.realnappiesforlondon.org.uk/apply

Real Nappy Meet and Give & Take @ Round Chapel Old School Rooms
Jun 22 @ 10:00 am – 11:30 am

We are so pleased to be back at the Round Chapel for our wonderful Meet, Give & Take event! The chance to meet and hang out with other local parents and babies who use reusable nappies, as well as helping to reduce waste and save money by reusing nappies and clothing rather than buying new – everybody wins!

Like a lovely jumble sale of preloved reusable nappy goodies and baby and maternity clothes, only everything is completely FREE!  Feel free to bring any unwanted CLEAN nappies or baby clothes in GOOD condition, to pass onto other local parents. There is absolutely NO obligation to bring something in order to take.  If you have nappies to donate, please try to being them at the beginning of the event so that they have a better chance of finding a new home on the day.  We are always available to receive donations in advance too.

We will also be joined by some of the Hackney Council recycling team who can issue you with your FREE £54 reusable nappy voucher via Real Nappies for London (ID and proof of address & birth/matB1 required).

Mel from Wrap a Hug Sling Library will be on hand for sling demos and hires. Book in advance if you would like a 1-2-1 session.

**Please do not attend if you have any COVID-19 symptoms or have been in close contact with a recent confirmed case THANKYOU**

We have also set up a facebook group to facilitate the buying/selling/sharing of preloved nappies locally HERE.

If you would like to donate nappies for this event but cannot make it on the day please contact us: info@hackneyrealnappy.net
