It’s a really easy format this year. Billy is using Rafflecopter

Coming Ready or Not…….

He’s good at hiding mind, so make sure you check every nook and cranny!

The 2016 hunt has been made nice and easy! Come and join us on the GB Nappy Hunt

(Please note The HUNT starts Monday Morning at 10am. Any entries submitted before that time will be disqualified.)

Also whilst we have tried to test the hunt on mobile devices and our hunt pages work, we cannot take responsibility if the retailers sites don’t support mobile use.

GB Nappy Hunt 2016 ……

How do I start?

No need to register this year just go straight to the rafflecopter link 


Billy’s main hunt organisers and supporters have hidden a Billy on their websites, you can see a list of them and their prizes HERE on Billy’s Website.


Simply work your way around the sites listed HERE to hunt out Billy.
Billy should always be hidden within 2 clicks of the homepages!

Find Billy’s hiding place on the website site. Collect the words from the image and enter those words in to rafflecopter for that specific retailer …

 

For Example:

Save MOney

 

This image would require you to enter “SAVE MONEY” into the rafflecopter box and confirm your entry for that site

You have all Real Nappy Week to complete the hunt – Entry will close at Midnight on Sunday 24th April 2016. Any entries received after this time will not be included in the prize draw. Each individual entry counts so you don’t need to find all of the hidden Billy’s to enter.

Have fun hunting Billy out!

Billy Needs You!

Billy and the Great British Nappy Hunt is run on a shoestring by a very small team of enthusiastic nappy retailers and manufacturers.  Our aim is to educate parents as to the benefits of choosing cloth nappies, and to encourage an increased uptake of real nappy users via our twice annual Hunt competitions  – The Great British Nappy Hunt which is held during Real Nappy Week in April, and Cloth Isn’t Scary (it really is very easy to use!) which is run over Halloween.

This is where we need YOU to share your love of cloth nappies, to tell everyone how great they are on containment, how easy they are to use, how soft and fluffy they are (would you wear paper underwear?) etc,  and also to share with everyone and anyone you can think of about Billy & The Great British Nappy Hunt and his mission to cloth nappy every baby.

We’re indebted to our sponsoring nappy retailers, wholesalers and manufacturers for their wonderful array of prizes, we’ll be telling you more about these very soon!WeNeedYou

BOO! The time is here – are you ready to come trick or treating with Billy??

THE MAIN HUNT

What is up for grabs in The Main Hunt? 
You can win one of six bundles of cloth nappies and accessories worth over £120 each.

 

Simply watch this video to see some of the fantastic products included in the bundles, and which companies are involved in the Main Hunt.


Download the video to view locally

How do I Hunt?
Billy is going to tell you a story. He will give you a chapter at a time, and each chapter contains a clue. Each clue will point you to one of the Main Hunt Supporters or Organisers.

Simply head to this company’s website (all companies and links can be found at http://www.greatbritishnappyhunt.co.uk/supporters.html) and search for Billy in one of his Halloween costumes. When you find him Billy will have a reason why ‘Cloth Isn’t Scary!’ – write this down, you will need it later. Then click on Billy – this will bring up the next chapter of his journey with another clue to solve.

All together Billy will hide 20 reasons that tell you why ‘Cloth Isn’t Scary!’ – these are easy to find on the images of Billy. Watch out… every now and then Billy will jump out and surprise you with an entry form for you to enter your reasons.

You have 4 days to complete the Hunt – entry will close at Midnight on Sunday 3rd November 2013. Any entries received after this time will not be included in the prize draw.
Be careful, you need to find all 20 reasons and enter them as Billy jumps out at you for your entry to be counted, however,  all ‘clues’ are numbered so it will be obvious if you are out of sequence.

 

Ready to begin? Then sit down and listen.
Billy is going to tell you a story…..

It’s getting dark and just a little spooky. The rain has stopped, and the wind has dropped. Billy is walking home through the woods. There is silence all around, so quiet you can hear odd noises from far away, a dog barking, the hoot of an owl, and the sharp crackles of twigs breaking as Billy walks along.

Billy thought he might be afraid, but he’s not because he can be brave as he knows if he need help it’s out there.

Billy reaches a clearing, and looks up into the sky. The clouds have cleared revealing a large moon that is full and bright. What’s that he can see sparkling in the sky? Lots of stars TWINKLEing in the night sky. That reminds him he has to go looking for some clues, and now he knows just where to find his first one. It’s been around for a lot longer than him – since 1999 to be precise – that’s where he can look for his first clue.

> Now go visit the company’s website and look for Billy!

 

THE PUMPKIN HUNT

What Can I Win in the Pumpkin Hunt?
Each retailer in the Pumpkin Hunt has donated their own spot-prize. Watch this video or go to http://www.greatbritishnappyhunt.co.uk/pumpkin_hunt.html for full details.



Download the video to view locally

 

How Do I Enter the Pumpkin Hunt?
The Pumpkin Hunt is simple – Participating pumpkin hunt retailers each have a prize on offer and have hidden a pumpkin image (like the one below) on their site.  All you have to do is find Billy’s pumpkin image and click on it to enter the competition to win the prize offered by that site. Look HERE for participating retailers and their websites.

 

PHOTO COMPETITION

Don’t forget to check out the entries to our Photo Competition on our Facebook Page  and while you are there, why not add your own? You could win a bundle of nappies worth £60
