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. The sponsorship money helps raise crucial funds for Nene Park Trust, directly supporting the upkeep of

Today I purposefully went in to the centre of town for 10.40 in order to see the 2018 Poppy Appeal Launch.

The Parade continued up Bridge Street to Long Causeway and into the entrance of Queensgate. The flag bearers then went up the escalators to hold their flags over the balconies from the upper level while the others seated themselves in front of the stage in

Studying Locally

Today, thanks to Radford, I got the chance to take a look around University Centre Peterborough on a private tour (oooh) and showcase what some 200 students will be attending for their studies in a couple of weeks and what future students could look forward to next year.

Currently with 500 returning students Peterborough will be housing some fresh new youngsters as they may be

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.
