Charity Target Number of Baubles Our Reach So Far We Love Peterborough gets involved in raising money for local charities! We saw the enticing notice from Nene Park's Ferry Meadows with regards to Christmas Tree Festival and how could I not sponsor one on their behalf for such a great area of Peterborough which is utilised by so many... there's less action going on during the winter months but the idea of our very own Christmas Tree was too much to resist.

Tonight we were #VeganVirgins but jumped straight in to try all 3 courses... so here we go: Drinks on
