2018-09-01T14:30:16+00:00September 1st, 2018|Days Out, Fun-for-all, General, Summer|

It's a lovely warm day today and where better to have a wander around than the embankment at the Peterborough Classic & Vintage Car Festival. It's on today and tomorrow with a host of vehicles and motorcycles to see. I took a quick nosey to see who and what was down there... First call was the Peterborough Visitor Centre where the lovely Tracy was giving out the official brochures (just £1 and the money goes to charity) that will tell you all about the exhibitors over this weekend. There are a few stalls for you to walk round which

Hotel Surprise…

2018-08-30T14:29:55+00:00August 30th, 2018|General, New Restaurants|

It's not very often that many of us go into a hotel to eat, we seem to have this impression that it's 1) not a great place to go, 2) mainly for residents and 3) not too keen on possible hotel food... however, let's see if we can get rid of that myth and enlarge our Peterborough circle of eating places not limiting it to just restaurants. So, we had the opportunity to eat at Holiday Inn West out at Thorpe Wood. Besides the food, which I'll come to in a moment, there is plenty of parking space and it's

Healthy lunches on the way

Daniel (owner) and Elisha will be pleased to see you in a new independent food place on Midgate. Green Bay Salads only opened last Thursday ago...they are offering healthy salad food as an alternative to the other food offerings for lunches in Peterborough. Peterborough-born Daniel wanted to be different in his food offerings as he realised that people’s food habits are changing more for the healthy options. Along with this he wanted people to have a CHOICE in what goes in their salad rather than just being given one completely and then having to pick bits out and throw them away. Everything

So someone said to the non-football fan, "you're going to watch football - have you bumped your head?" well actually that's another story but..... Yes We Love Peterborough are at Peterborough United football friendly today against Bolton.   With some 'extra special' tickets today we were given a stadium tour by the lovely Tommy Robson, a really lovely man, full of the joys and jokes of football and life. An excellent celebrity to be given a history with. From one side of the stadium to the other, even non-football fans can be interested.   The pitch is a gleaming

Spring has Sprung… In this rain?!?!?

No it's not a great day.. .it's raining yet AGAIN! However, it is great inside today down at Queensgate Shopping Centre where you'll find some great things today about spring... Spring has definitely sprung with their beautiful roses #FlowerWall...a great place for lots of amazing selfies.... but it's about more than flowers today. You can grab some wonderful #FashionAdvice from the lovely Olivia as she shows you spring patterns, colours, makes outfits with a range of clothes and shoes and there are mannequins with ever-changing outfits for you to see. Work your way around and you'll come across Sia and

Trying something new…

2018-04-19T21:08:00+00:00April 19th, 2018|General, Great Food|

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. Philip served us at a table outside so we could enjoy the warm spring air as it had been such a sunny day. We started with the Chicken Liver Pâté £5.45 (smooth pâté, onion chutney and warm sourdough) a large portion of pâté that contrasted well against the chutney and the smoothness of the pâté worked well with

Friday 13th Lucky for Us!

So it may be Friday 13th and unlucky for some, but it definitely wasn't for us as we were 'lucky' enough to be asked to come and try the Dragonfly Hotel's new menu. Now, some of you may not know it, or may actually pass it by and not give it another thought.... but maybe next time you should get yourself down there as it has a lovely location right next to the Rowing Lake (off Thorpe Road) with some great views from their bar area and restaurant. When the weather is good, the doors are open and you

Some ‘Dirty Rotten Scoundrels’ are coming…

2018-02-01T11:08:18+00:00February 1st, 2018|Fun-for-all, General, Must Do-Visit-See|

We attended a practice session tonight for the musical of Dirty Rotten Scoundrels... being played by the Peterborough Operatic and Dramatic Society this March at The Key Theatre. The group has been going since the early 1900s believe it or not and there’s a complete mix of people within their group working full time in the day as they then also give up their spare time to their passion or love of acting, dancing and singing whether they are ex-professional from London’s West End or amateur. We some with some of the cast?to get a feel of what it’s

A Piece of Art…

2018-01-27T14:05:36+00:00January 27th, 2018|General, News, Shopping, Uniqueness|

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
