Tonight we were lucky enough to be invited to try out the Middleton's Steakhouse & Grill's new Spring menu... what a treat! They’ve added some wonderful new things on their menu to suit all tastes including a larger range of vegetarian dishes.

So after spotting a post on Facebook this morning I sauntered down to Queensgate (at the entrance to McDonalds) to take a look at the #FAFPTB Free Art Friday Peterborough Galler Pop-Up. I was greeted by the lovely Kaine, who paused for a few moments from writing numbers on stickers, who told me all about what was going on.... Free Art Friday is a concept where #Artists get together and give some of their artwork away for free. Yes I said FREE. It basically helps to get unknown artists - known. In this small gallery you will find numerous
