    Concerts, Ice skating and Shopping: Nottingham from the eyes of a 17 year old

    Nottingham may be famously associated with the legend of Robin Hood and is full of historical attractions, but when my 17-year-old friends and I think about Nottingham, other things come to mind: concerts, ice skating, and, of course, shopping.

    Nottingham has just as much to offer young people as it does other age groups. The vast array of shops in the city centre can easily keep the average teenage girl entertained for hours. The Victoria and Broadmarsh shopping centres and the surrounding streets offer a great choice, and it’s hard to think of a high street name that doesn’t feature somewhere in the city.

    Aside from the well-known names, Nottingham also has

    Outdoor activities in Nottinghamshire this summer

    This warm weather has got me thinking, why not spend some time outdoors in Nottinghamshire this summer?

    The area is home to Go Ape, a high wire adventure course which is one of the most popular in the country. With a number of zip wires and other crossings on a 909m course, it makes for a great family day out as well as the ideal place for some adrenalin-fuelled fun with friends.

    Nottinghamshire Vintage Tractor and Engine Club Event

    The Nottinghamshire Vintage Tractor & Engine Club will be holding their Ruby Celebrations at a working weekend over the August Bank Holiday at Gamston, Near Retford.

    The event, taking place at Gamston Grange includes a ploughing match, working tractors, and have-a-go old time ploughing with one of a pair of shire horses.

    It’s a great option for family days out with lots to see and do as well as a DIY barbeque and a licensed bar for all three days of the event. If you have young children that like big tractors, then they’ll definitely love this event.

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…
