    We’ve had a busy summer here in Nottinghamshire, filled with a real feast of excitement and entertainment.

We’re squeezing in as many festivities into the next 31 days as physically possible – so without any further ado, let’s jump right into some of the highlights of our first weekend of October action.

    Bramley Apples Hand Picked for Special Protection by EC

    A splash of cream, a crumbly crust and – of course – those all-important chunks of tangy Bramley Apple. We all know and love the comfort of a slice of warm apple pie, and the Bramley Apple is world famous for the unique fluffy texture it takes on when cooked until caramel brown.

    In Nottinghamshire, we’ve long been proud of our world-envied apples, which we’ve been generously stuffing into steaming pies for generations. Now, finally, the humble Bramley Apple is getting the recognition, and protection, it deserves.

    Joining illustrious regional specialities like the Cornish Pasty, Mozzarella Cheese and Parma Ham, Bramley Apple Pie filling’s place on the world map of culinary treasures has

    Looking Back At England’s Trent Bridge Ashes Triumph

    For Nottinghamshire’s own Stuart Broad, it was a performance that he could scarcely believe. In the first two hours of one of the most crucial test matches of his career, his fizzing deliveries dismissed no fewer than eight Australian batsmen – conceding just 15 runs in the process.

    The Trent Bridge crowd knew they had witnessed something special, as England effectively sealed the Ashes in an extraordinary first 18 overs – rattling through the much-fancied Australians for just 60 runs.

    Although there was some disappointment for fans with tickets that the game finished almost three days early, the demolition job simply gave them – and the England team – extra time to party

    England Stars Lend a Hand As New Community Clubhouse Rises From the Ashes

    After months of build-up, the Ashes have finally arrived in Nottinghamshire. With the series perfectly balanced at 2-1 to the home side, it’s do or die time for the Australians – if they still have plans to take the Ashes back home with them.

    England, meanwhile, will be hoping to continue their great form and seal the series. The dream of lifting cricket’s smallest – but most significant – trophy right here in Nottingham, is still very much alive.

    The action gets under-way tomorrow, and with England’s Jimmy Anderson missing out due to injury – the hopes of a nation fall largely on Nottinghamshire’s own Stuart Broad, who looks set to take his
