    Pokémon hunt in Nottinghamshire

    The world is in the midst of Pokémon fever and Nottinghamshire is proving to be a hot spot for Pokémon trainers, with the little creatures being spotted at several locations in both the city and county. And as we’ve got a few avid Pokémon trainers in our office we decided to share our Poké-knowledge and top hunting tips with everyone out there who wants to go catch them all.

    There have been confirmed reports of water Pokémon sightings at the Holme Pierrepont Country Park including Psyducks, Shellders, Staryus and plenty of Magikarps with high CP to evolve into your very own Gyarados, roaming around the stunning grounds of the Country Park. While

    Up, up, and away with Central Helicopters

    My other half is a tad obsessed with cars, motorbikes, tanks; basically a fan of anything with an engine that either goes like the clappers or is a military vehicle. So, when I was looking around for an experience gift that he hadn’t tried, but wouldn’t break the bank, I was amazed to find a helicopter flying experience with Central Helicopters at a great affordable price.

    He’s always wanted to have a helicopter lesson having been a passenger many times over the years in various military varieties but never thought he would get the chance to fly one, until now. Cue me scoring major wife points

    Lunch at the Revolución de Cuba Nottingham

    We were invited by the Revolución de Cuba to sample their new lunch menu straight from the exotic island of Fidel and Che. With una gran fiesta on our minds our team went to explore Cuban foodie delights at this Havana-like setting. Here is what we thought of our lunch at the Revolución de Cuba.

    Rachel – I’ve been to Revolución de Cuba a few times – whether it’s with friends over a cocktail or a work lunch with a mocktail – it never disappoints.  The atmosphere has an authentic Cuban feel and the welcome is always friendly.  The Menu del Dia offers a perfect range for a work

    Tour of the D.H. Lawrence Birthplace Museum

    On a sunny Friday morning I ventured into the town of Eastwood to find out more about the famous D.H. Lawrence. I’ve heard a lot about him and read some of his books but never actually knew much about his life and background. I was really looking forward to the day ahead.

    The small ex-mining town of Eastwood is where baby David Herbert Lawrence, also known as D.H. Lawrence, was born, and grew up, along with his two brothers and two sisters. Lawrence’s father, Arthur John Lawrence, was a coal miner, and his mother, Lydia Lawrence, worked in the lace-making industry to contribute into the family’s income. She

    5 fabulous things to do with kids at Sherwood Forest Visitor Centre

    Those of us who live in Nottinghamshire, are lucky enough to be able to brag about our county’s legendary association with the world famous Robin Hood of Sherwood Forest. No matter who you speak to, whether they’re from America, Australia or anywhere in between, you’d be hard pressed to find anyone who’d never heard of Sherwood Forest. However, just when did you last pay our great forest a visit? Perhaps things have changed a bit since your last trip. Of course, the big old Major Oak will always stand proud at the centre of everything which is Sherwood Forest, but what else is there, especially for those visiting with
