“I’ve got withdrawals….. can you make another hunt please? Heehee!”
Billy and his team are gearing up for the 3rd Annual Great British Nappy Hunt, which will take place during Real Nappy Week 2015, from Monday 20th April 2015 to Sunday 26th April 2015!
“It was brilliant. I was telling my husband how well organised it was (not sure he was listening mind you). Everything just worked beautifully and it was great fun. Can’t wait to find out if I have won anything but most of all I can’t wait to start shopping. I found sites that I hadn’t thought of looking on for certain products.”
We have retained the fabulous and mobile-friendly Billy Tracker introduced last year. This enables you to enter your answers as you find them, and saves them for you, which means you can pick up the Hunt exactly where you left off. We all know just how easy it is to be distracted when you’ve toddlers and babies to look after!
“I have just finished the main hunt and wanted to say well done on making it. I think this time you made the perfect balance of a challenge but possible to find the time while looking after young kids too.”
The Great British Nappy Hunt first ran in 2013. The team behind GBNH wanted to go back to the roots of the Real Nappy movement started an off-shoot of WEN (the Women’s Environmental Network) back in 1997, to provide a new way to engage people that were perhaps not aware of modern cloth nappies, and to educate and to inform them of the benefits of using cloth nappies.
“I was cloth curious but had never tried it. I joined in the nappy hunt and found myself ordering some cloth. After the nappy hunt I’m really excited to give cloth a go. Thank you Billy!”
The first Great British Nappy Hunt was a resounding success, it ran very successfully and despite the extra web traffic generated, all the participants websites more-or-less held up for the duration of the competition. Alongside the Hunt we promoted our Resources pages – a comprehensive guide to all you need to know about choosing and using nappies, including details of Council cloth nappy incentives and schemes, links to the Nappy Libraries and to all the retailers up and down the country.
Tell your friends, and organise an event !
We also promote current nappy users to encourage others to take up using cloth, with our downloadable Event Organiser’s pack including posters and ideas for publicity. All events will be listed by location on Billy’s web page, please just email details of your event in to email@example.com. We need more of you to shout out the benefits of cloth to non-users: find our information and downloads here: http://www.greatbritishnappyhunt.co.uk/resources.html
“I hadn’t really thought about using reusable nappies but found your ‘Billy’ character appealing when it popped on Facebook, and wanted to know more. Several pages of your website later I found an event going on in the next town, and here I am with my little boy in his first ever cloth nappies – very cute! Well done Billy, I will save a fortune and have a nearly empty dustbin”
In addition to our resources section Billy and the GBNH team like to be on hand to help with any cloth nappy questions and regularly host ‘cloth clinic’ over on the Facebook page. Make sure you like the page to keep up to date with events and cloth clinic

Sorry for the delay in announcing the winners from the St David’s Day competition. The ‘helpers’ at NGL chucked the laptop off the sofa and the screen has gone totally white so it’s had to go to the repair shop. In the meantime we have managed to verify that the entrants had actually followed the instructions and like both pages as well as entering “Share the Love/ Rhannwch y Cariad”, Billy is a stickler for the rules! So using random.org we have 3 winners:
Please email firstname.lastname@example.org or message us via Facebook and let us know your address so we can get your prizes sent out. Congratulations ladies!Pin It
