    Last weekend saw the Nottingham Riverside Festival combine for the first time with Nottingham Mela to showcase a vibrant and colourful cultural festival.

    On arrival, all the families seemed to meet outside and it took us a little time to get through the entrance gates as children were measured according to which attractions they were allowed to ride. Once inside, we all almost immediately headed towards an adventure play area and the small roller coaster beyond

Birds, herds and beautiful scenery was the focus on my Wildlife Photography Course at Sherwood Hideaway

When I was asked to spend my weekend at Sherwood Hideaway to take part in wildlife activities available there, of course I was only too happy to oblige. It sounded like a wonderful experience and I could think of much worse ways to spend my weekend. Wildlife walks take place each Sunday at Sherwood Hideaway…
