Community Workshop Skills & Creativeness

2021-02-24T14:42:55+00:00February 24th, 2021|Adults Only, Fun-for-all, Uniqueness|

Have you heard of the CP Learning Trust and their 'Building Better Opportunities – eMploY-ABILITY' project? I came across their February workshops as they posted them out to me to add as events and decided to have a little nosey at what there were doing in the way of helping the community in Peterborough.    This particular project is aimed at engaging participants, upskilling and supporting them towards employment and is delivered throughout Peterborough, Fenland and West Norfolk. The events are provided by means of funding by the European Social Fund and Community Fund of the National Lottery.  

History On My Doorstep

You may think that Peterborough doesn’t really have anyone or anything famous about it, after all, it’s not very often heard about, apart from that wonderful advert years ago with Roy Kinnear (as a Roman Centurion) as Peterborough was becoming a new town in the 1980s, but you’d be mistaken. We have a full lineage of famous places and people that maybe you didn’t know were connected with our wonderful city. I’ll tell you about a few I have connections with... One of the more recent was English entrepreneur, restaurateur, art collector, politician and philanthropist; Peter Boizot M.B.E. He

Clever – Ingenious – Full of Humour

2020-12-16T20:03:24+00:00December 15th, 2020|Christmas, Events, Fun-for-all, Shows, Uniqueness|

Laugh? it’s a continuous roll! :-) Tonight was opening night for Lamphouse Theatre’s edition of their ‘A Christmas Carol ‘ and what a night it was....! A ‘Clever - Ingenious - Full of Humour’ rollercoaster ride of entertainment. Take my hat off to Tom Fox, the one-man Scrooge, Cratchit family, Marley, Ghosts, bystanders and all. It’s a mad-cap caper of a live stage show that’s worth the tenner to go, have a laugh (what we probably need) and keep a small theatre company going, in the process. From flying ghosts and hidden rooms to clever acting - it’s a nonstop

A Piece of Art

2021-01-28T11:25:07+00:00December 1st, 2020|Days Out, Great For Kids, Summer, Uniqueness, Walks|

Wood, metal, concrete, grass and water... it’s all a piece of art. I’ve not been here since last summer and thought I’d take a walk this weekend after we’d been put into our second lockdown. So a nice place to meander around Peterborough Sculpture Park did the trick of clearing my mind in the sunshine. Located at Thorpe Meadows the Sculpture Park sits behind the Dragonfly Hotel and The Boat House – two places for a nice cup of coffee (when they are open). The starting point is over on the left hand side of the Rowing Lake, before

The Icing On the Cake…sicle!

2020-10-26T10:19:22+00:00October 26th, 2020|Adults Only, Events, Uniqueness|

I decided to do something creative so I signed up for a cakesicle workshop with my mum at Celebrations Peterborough It’s an independent small business based in New England, at the triangle. The shop is full of everything you need for any type of cake making whether you’re a beginner or a master cake maker. There were 4 students in total (small socially distanced classes) Soundari, Claire, Marion and myself. We all met ready for two o’clock armed with our masks and aprons and were shown upstairs to the classroom. The lovely Anne Robinson is the shop owner and experienced

Scoot Over! Coyotes are in Town

2020-09-25T16:06:14+01:00September 25th, 2020|Adults Only, Events, General, New Restaurants, News, Uniqueness|

What a treat today as finally I get a FIRST LOOK at the finished Coyotes Bar & Grill in town located behind the market and I have to say it’s looking gooood. . I spoke with John, a born and bred Peterboroughian, about what him and his partner Neil have planned for you all and it sounds great.   One of the first thing's you'll notice when you go in is Old Humphrey Bogart sitting proudly on the wall watching over the coffee machines and greets you when you come in, but look up and you've got a sky

Stop the Train!!!

2020-09-22T18:57:43+01:00September 22nd, 2020|Escapologists!, Fun-for-all, General, News, Uniqueness|

We've not been out for a long time to do an Escape room, however, this brand new one was too much of an enticement for us. Hourglass Escape Room has only just opened at the Focus Centre on Chesnut Avenue in Dogsthorpe. It has been created and is run by two long-term escape room enthusiasts Della-Marie and James - who by the way, built this room single-handed. Their room is called Unstoppable: Your train from Kings Cross is in trouble and you’re the only people who can stop it before disaster hits at Peterborough! They've already had a bunch

Just Grazing…

2020-08-27T14:38:33+01:00August 27th, 2020|General, Great Food, Great For Kids, New Restaurants, News, Uniqueness|

There's a little hidden gem that you need to know about situated at Orton Southgate which will fill your belly with goodies galore whether eating in or delivered to home. Dorinda started her Gaze & Graze business back in February working from home with her little one Noah. She offered takeaway boxes of food that you can basically pick on all day long. Lockdown came and instead of her businesses taking a step back it took a step up. Deliveries to homes were flying out her door. Dorinda moved to out-of-home premises to keep up with demand and now

Inari – Fox Goddess

2020-08-20T17:04:03+01:00August 20th, 2020|General, Great Food, New Restaurants, Uniqueness|

Superb!! Today we decided to eat out at Inari on Broadway, Peterborough and wow what an experience! Both 'sushi virgins' we were a little worried about eating things that we didn't like; but left up to the Bar Manager Eduardo's recommendations and Chef Regimantas we were pleasantly surprised and came away full and wanting to return soon. Inari Sushi and Grill opened back in February and then, unfortunately, we then went into lockdown had to close to diners. However, they kept going with a takeaway option and are now open again for dining inside. Chef Regimantas has been in

Meet Eddy & Gucci

2020-08-12T09:39:37+01:00August 8th, 2020|General, News, Uniqueness|

Meet Gucci! Actually, this little cutie won’t be cutting your hair, trimming your beard or doing a shave, it will in fact be Eddy or one of the other staff at Eddy Lady Barber. She’s moved from her premises in the town end of Lincoln Road and just opened up today at unit 9 in Rivergate. (plenty of parking too) Eddy Lady Barber comes complete with rotating and lit barber shop pole outside and really is a sight for sore eyes - with brightly coloured artwork, large comfy settees and light music 🎶 in the background. It’s got a totally
