Isn’t it great when something pops up on social and it interests you to do more…? I saw a post about wine growing in the UK which wasn’t far from Peterborough, so it sparked my curiosity further. So, last week we went along to the The Rutland Vineyard to see for myself. It’s located in the beautiful backroads of Ketton just up the A1 not far from Stamford. It started off a lovely sunny day as I entered into their small cafe. Well decorated and set out with tables, chairs and tall bench seats. The menu is small; concentrating

Something old, something new

I’ve just been to get a preview of a new boutique opening in the cathedral precincts and this time it’s wedding bells. Bridal Reloved owner Lucy has just put the finishing touches to her dream and will be opening her boutique tomorrow on Sunday for all to see. What is it about? Bridal Reloved is all about no waste. Whether it’s sample designer dresses, ex catalogue dresses or even dresses preloved from a previous wedding… they are all beautiful. Not everyone has a huge budget for their wedding and dresses can normally cost over £2000, so why not reduce

I had the pleasure of visiting Alwalton Hall this week as I received a birthday treat voucher, so was whisked away on Friday to enjoy it. Arriving at the grand house is an experience in itself, a beautiful home which has been turned into this beauty haven. Greeted and given something to drink as I waited for my beautician to come and get me and take me up into a wonderful teal coloured room with a twinkling of soft music. I received a wonderful full body massage from Courtney which was an hour's relaxation with warm oils. It's a

Star Wars Has Arrived

2023-07-18T23:33:10+01:00July 18th, 2023|Days Out, Shows, Uniqueness|

Unofficial Galaxies is one of the most exciting exhibits to see this year in Peterborough, especially if you are already a fan of Star Wars. You’ll be impressed by this 120+ piece collection which includes a full-size Landspeeder on show which was purchased from London’s Elstree Studios - the home of the original trilogy going back to 1977, and one of the most valuable props is the desk and chair of young Anakin Skywalker from the 1999 film The Phantom Menace. Also on display are an array of original production items including light sabres from Luke and Darth Vader,

Going to Hell & Back at the Lido

Friends of Peterborough Lido volunteers helped set up this unique performance of the Summer Outdoor Theatre from Mask Theatre - Faustus. They will be ensuring you have a good experience and adhering to safety regs by making sure you’re not going near the pools which are cordoned off. Clare, Marion & Shan were checking tickets on the door and offering a copy of the program. (It’s just £1), David & Sue were showing everyone to the places on the lawn for setting up a blanket or camping chair. Me? I was doing a bit of program selling and making

Come into the Sanctuary

It's not very often when you walk into a new business that you find out that it's actually 4 in 1! That happened to me yesterday, 29th June, when I popped into a local new coffee shop on Oundle Road called The Sanctuary. Vickie and Lauren run the newly opened The Sanctuary where they are offering coffee, crystals and cake. It opened last Friday. On entering you are instantly hit with sparkle and colour from Vickie's 'Crystal Boutique' which has been situated here for around 15 months. There are lots of different pieces for different remedies, for healing, for

Sweet Tooth?

Saw that a new shop had opened on Park Road. Town end near the old Beales store so I thought I'd pop in on Tuesday to see exactly what it was all about. Sabrina has been open for 6 weeks now, she tried to open a while ago but found she just wasn't quite ready, but now she is and is waiting for all you sweet fans to go and see her. The shop sells lots of brightly coloured sweets which you'll find around the shop in large glass jars. You can really go to town and do a

Student Food – Yes Please!

Surprise of the day, week, year… well life actually as I’ve never been. I saw a lovely event menu in November and completely forgot about it until I received a reminder email from Restaurant manager Francesca De Falco…it was a couple of night’s notice but I thought, yes I’m game - I want to try this out. Do you know what? I’m glad I did as I’ll definitely be back…. The Parcs restaurant is situated in Peterborough College and gives the students the chance to work and gain real-life experience. My expectations were not high and the menu sounded
