Competition toddles on

27th April 2005

Parents in Three Rivers still have the chance to save money and help the environment by entering the Three Rivers Real Nappy Campaign competition.

The deadline for the competition, to win a complete set of real nappies, has been extended. Parents now have until Tuesday 31 May to submit their entries.

The 'birth to potty pack' up for grabs provides babies with all the real nappies they will need. The nappies will be made to order to ensure a perfect fit, and come in a variety of styles and colours.

For a chance to win, all parents have to do is guess the answer to the following question:

How many babies were born in Three Rivers in 2003?

Three Rivers District Council's Waste Minimisation Officer, Jennie Moore, said:

"The Council promotes the use of real nappies by offering cash back to parents who buy real nappies or use a laundering service. This competition is yet another step in promoting the use of real nappies throughout the district and will give one lucky winner the opportunity to cater for their baby's nappy wearing life without cost. The average baby will wear 4,500 disposables so the saving to the environment through the use of real nappies is also significant."

Entry forms can be found at local health clinics, GP surgeries, mother and baby groups, or are available from the Council offices in Rickmansworth. Alternatively, guesses can be emailed to along with the entrant's name, address, and contact telephone number
