KEEPING IT LOCAL

Our mission is to spread the word of the goings on in Peterborough

16,000 followers and growing!!! This page is all about sharing what’s going on in Peterborough so you can enjoy where you live more by getting involved in and actually going to events no matter how big or small – from the opening of new shops, the launches of new restaurants, our massive annual summertime event – the wonderful Heritage Festival down to your local school or church fairs and coverage of independent business events around the city.

Generally, not everyone always knows which events are happening where and when, and a lot of the time you hear ‘Oh, I didn’t realise that was on’. So, by having creating We Love Peterborough we have a platform for sharing those events. We share them beforehand which really does help with getting the word out and then, we also try to, attend as many events as we can in order to promote it whilst it’s actually happening. That goes out to our continually growing fan base both online and on social.

Our aim is to make you, our fans, feel that there’s much more going on around you whether it’s in the week, the weekend or the school holidays especially for children – you will be able to enjoy some special times together with friends, family or on your own; whether it’s watching a play in a theatre, having a delicious afternoon tea in a hotel, getting out of the next new escape room or simply a walk around a handicrafts market! When we hear or see something going on we’ll let you know too – we always have a camera ready in hand.

From time to time we will try out new or existing restaurants to share how you can expand your food circle and try new things too. Our reviews on restaurants are honest and unbiased from Peterborian people – by no means food critics. We’re here to share what we think about our city and its chains, independent restaurateurs’ food and services making the city a whole better place to be in, eat in and visit. Take a look at our blog as to what we’ve been up to recently.

We very much welcome ANYONE to tell us about their events and what’s happening in their local areas. We want your event to be a success, and for that you need people to attend. We are not just about the city centre either, although it is the hub central point of Peterborough, we don’t want to forget the Ortons, the Brettons, Dogsthorpe, Werrington, Paston, Walton, Stanground and those wonderful suburbs and villages a little further out too which we still feel fall under the Peterborough umbrella like Whittlesey, Elton, the Deepings etc. So, if you live in any of these…let us know what’s going on.

  • Let us know about your coming events

  • Send us  your photos / reviews and knowledge of Peterborough

  • Seen something new, heard something interesting – let us know

MEET THE TEAM

Susan

Photography, Events & Media

I have a passion for making Peterborough the best it can be for everyone living here. Peterborough has its good points and its bad so it’s all about making the most of what we have in the way of promoting events, sharing the good places, the great food you can eat and unveiling the new.

There’s no biased for who has a listing or event on our website or through our social media. It doesn’t matter whether you have a small or large event, whether your company is independent or a chain, everyone is equal.

Camera in hand I will attend as many events as possible, so if the camera gets pointed at you… smile!

Advertising

It’s all about We Love Peterborough Businesses! I’ll be looking after all enquiries for advertising on the We Love Peterborough brand.
This includes the main website listings for tourism businesses, the A-Z business listings and any advertising on our social media platform.

All tourism listings on the website are created on a basic level as a place for visitors to find instant information and ideas of places to go, things to do, places to eat and for outside Peterborough travellers to stay.

The website business listing is where any business within Peterborough can showcase their products and services to all our visitors.

Whatever marketing you are looking for to help your business, drop me a line.

Helping Small & Independent Businesses

We believe that small independent businesses need to be shouted about. That’s why we’ve created the We Love Peterborough Businesses Group. Here you’ll find a list of local businesses that offer as much, if not more than the large chains out there. Whether the business is a florist, an event organiser, a builder, a hairdresser or even a shop owner, their businesses matter and their customer service levels are genuinely higher. To find out how to join contact us, to find out when our next meeting is, please visit our Facebook page: We Love Peterborough Businesses or find us on Eventbrite.

We Love Peterborough Businesses Network – Launch 2018

We had a wonderful turnout at our launch event back in June 2018 held at the Sponsor’s Lounge at Peterborough United’s Abax Stadium and are looking forward to helping businesses on a regular basis.

For our launch we had the Mayor of Peterborough attend along the Lady Mayoress to officially open our group and an amazing motivational speech by David Wait, General Manager at Serpentine Green about overcoming obstacles in business – He is currently on a mission to become Steve Austin I think (the bionic man to you oldies out there) as he wades through some Monster Challenges raising money for charity as well as losing a colossal amount of Weight or is that ‘Wait’!

Afterward, we had a lovely buffet which was sponsored by Blue Monkey Web and this followed with all attending small businesses mingling and networking together.
