Games & Community what a great mix.

Last week I took a visit over to Angle at Walton. If you don't know about them already, they are a gaming lounge for box games, war games, virtual reality, axe throwing and escape rooms. A complete complex for the community to come and use even if it's just for a coffee and a chat.   Their axe throwing (used to be at Peterborough One Retail Park) is now here too and it has ample lanes for groups to play. Grab an axe and aim at the board, most points wins. Simple really. You'll be paying £20 per hour

Grab a Box and Play

Dane & Becky have been working hard to get it ready and all they are waiting for now is the signage and the coffee machine. ☕️ Never been before? You book a table by the hour and choose a game to play… I actually couldn’t see any games that I recognised like that family argument causer Monopoly! They are new games which can be anything from; an easy family game to a difficult strategy game, from a solo game to a team escape game. If you need a hand to pick a game - they are experienced at giving

It started at ‘The Beginning’

2022-11-23T21:51:49+00:00November 23rd, 2022|Christmas, Events, Fun-for-all, Great For Kids, Must Do-Visit-See|

We're standing here at 4.45pm on another cold November night, hoping it won't rain as we queue for this year's Luxmuralis light show at Peterborough Cathedral. Our tickets checked we are allowed in as we walk through the gates to an awaiting West Front of the Cathedral for the magic to begin. Once again we are a fairly big crowd for this first showing and after a countdown the lights and music begins. We start with a whirl as Santa's sleigh glides over from right to left leaving a trail of magic stars. It's a lovely way to start

Get those golf sticks out, it’s open!

2022-11-11T12:46:10+00:00November 11th, 2022|Fun-for-all, Great For Kids|

Puttstars golf opened today in Queensgate, so I purchased a couple of tickets for me and my husband to go and have a game and see exactly what it was all about. The entrance in Queensgate is on the upper floor going towards the bus station and looks fabulous- it’s very colourful and very bright. It’s definitely something which you and the kids are going to like and it’s not too pricey on the pocket; games start at £6 each for adults, £5 for juniors and families from £20.90, and if you want to play all three areas then

Jump in if you are ‘Full Of Beans’

2022-10-22T14:02:20+01:00October 21st, 2022|Fun-for-all, Great For Kids, News|

I passed this the other day and wondered what it was all about as it did look strange with the coloured ramps in the window, so had to pay a visit. Meeting Charlotte (supervisor) and Josh on his first day - making a great latte by the way… Full of Beans has not been open long and Charlotte explained the concept to me. It's created for children up to 8 years old who want to play. With a ball pit, mirrors, a twisting flower, a slide, ramps, tubes and sensory lights, children can play for one and a half

Platinum Jubilee Scarecrow Trail

2022-06-04T12:55:25+01:00June 3rd, 2022|Days Out, Fun-for-all, General, Great For Kids, Uniqueness, Walks|

Friday I thought I'd get myself to Werrington Green to this amazing little activity… Werrington Show’s Scarecrow trail is under way and I took a drive down to see what it is all about. On this lovely sunny day, you can park your car up, like me, and do the trail by foot or do the longer second trail by car or on your bike. You just need to sign up for £1 and you’ll get a lovely trail map filled with information and a Q&A sheet. You basically need to follow the map and find each scarecrow and

Skate & Paint

2022-01-20T11:01:01+00:00January 20th, 2022|General, Great For Kids, News, Shopping, Uniqueness|

We went for a nosey in what is possibly Peterborough and Cambridgeshire's ONLY Skate and Paint one-stop shop. Not that I'm a skateboarder myself that is... (but I have been on one a bit of a while ago...) BDco Skate and Paint is a new skate shop and paint supplier in Peterborough. Well, we say new, but unfortunately, they opened just before covid struck and it meant that they couldn’t trade as they'd hoped and had to close for half the year. On top of that, they had some location issues and had to move location in Second Drove,
