Our branch has considered the current situation with COVID-19 and have taken the decision to cancel the “in person” sling library sessions due to take place on Saturday 28th March and 25th April. We hope to still offer a "remote" sling library.
All current hirers will be contacted and asked to drop their slings at volunteers’ houses at the end of their hire as the “in person” sling library sessions due to take place on Saturday 28th March and 25th April have been cancelled. We will then wash them safely and quarantine them for 72 hours. They are then available for rehire.
If you are hoping to hire a sling then please email Slinglibrary.SuttonEpsomAndDistrict@nct.org.uk and we hope to be able to arrange a drop off at your house, subject to volunteer and sling availability.
We want everyone to be able access support during this time, so please don’t hesitate to ask.
The Sutton and Epsom Sling Library is at our Nearly New Sale!
The Sling Library is appearing at our Nearly New Sale, before the sale entry point, so you can come along free of charge - although of course you're very welcome to explore the sale, too!
Alongside the shopping, our Sling Library will be there with our range of wraps, slings and carriers to try or hire. Plus, we have hot drinks and cake to buy to help you through the afternoon! See you there!
Come along to talk all things babywearing with our volunteers and other parents, and try out a variety of slings suitable from newborn to toddler. You can hire a sling for a month for just £12, and we have slings for sale, too.
We don't charge a deposit for sling hire - you just need to bring a proof of address and cash for the hire.
