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. Royal British Legion veterans and flag bearers were leading the parade from outside the Town Hall facing the cenotaph with Peterborough Mayor and Mayoress and other dignitaries from across the country following behind. 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

It’s all steam ahead at Nene Valley Railway today as the Flying Scotsman fills up for its first journey from Wansford to Peterborough... Seats A5 and A6 taken on this once of a lifetime chance of riding behind the grand Lady herself. There’s a Scott’s band playing with the bagpipes as a great send off. An area with memorabilia along with a few stalls too. The carriages are old style so you’ll really feel like you’ve stepped back in tune. In fact a pat on the back for all the NVR staff who do a fantastic job of keeping

There's a host of things going on too to keep the kids occupied as this is who it is really aimed at anyway. We have a juggler and a wandering Mad Hatter card magician,
