- Barefoot Books
I love Barefoot books - they are all beautifully illustrated and a little bit different from what you see in mainstream bookshops. I particularly love the multi-cultural element to them. Suzanne is a friend of mine who sells Barefoot Books in Oxfordshire.
- Berkshire Nappies
Adele and I were Lollipop advisors together. Due to the local nature of our businesses I highly recommend visiting Adele if you live in Reading.
- Coombe Mill Farm Holidays
This is a favourite family holiday destination of ours since the girls were tiny. We've been three times, which is a record for us as we don't normally return to the same place - we like to explore places new. But Coombe Mill is just perfect so we happily go back!
- East oxford Farmers' Market
East Oxford Farmers' Market is held every Saturday in East Oxford Primary School behind Tesco on the Cowley Road. It sells the most amazing array of locally produced food (I can highly recommend the samosas and falafels!) I am lucky enough to be allowed a stall there once a month - always the second saturday, so come along and see me there.
- Kasisi Orphanage
This is the orphanage where I send the secondhand nappies. They have up to 100 babies at any one time - that's alot of nappies each day!
- Mama Cocoon
This site is owned by Ruth who lives just around the corner from me and is the mummy to a gorgeous pair of twins. She designs and sells a range of Maternity and Nursing tops, some of which are also made from organic cotton.
- Sustainable Wallingford
I first started offering Nappy Trials through Sustainable Wallingford with a well-used set of Motherease nappies. These were borrowed by numerous families in Wallingford until they were replaced by a brand new set of real nappies containing lots of different brands. At the time Sustainable Wallingford was one of the only places in Britain which had nappies for people to borrow. In 2004 our Trial scheme won the Real Nappy Awards and came first in our category. With the prize money I got together with Tots Bots and designed a teenytiny nappy to be used in St George's Ward at Wallingford Hospital. To this day new babies in Wallingford can wear one of the tiny nappies for their first few days of life. Whilst the nappy trial scheme is only loosely associated with Sustainable Wallingford now, The Nappy Shed and SusWal continue to work together to promote cloth nappies in the Wallingford area.
Peggy lives, and sells a gorgeous range of slings, in Oxford and surrounding areas.
