  • Newark Antiques Fair Posted on 18 August 2011

    Things to do this weekend, 19-21 August 2011

    We’re already beginning to think about the weekend here and given that we’re still in the throes of the summer school holidays there’s a heck of a lot going on around Nottinghamshire.

    Here’s our list of some of the things that we think you might want to do:

    On Friday 19 August, you’ll find Newark Antiques Fair at Newark Showground. This event only takes place every other month and is a big draw for antiques traders and customers alike. Find yourself something totally unique and pick up a bargain.

    Every evening over the weekend up to and including Sunday 21 August, you’ll find Purelands Japanese Garden lit up with lanterns from 7pm to 10pm.

  • Sherwood Pines Forest Park Posted on 16 August 2011

    Robin Hoods Hideout declared a top ten natural English play spot.

    Sherwood Pines, including its natural play area, Robin Hood’s Hideout, has been identified as a top ten natural play spot in England according to the Forestry Commission.

    The organisation that manages one of the key country parks that make up Sherwood Forest, has conducted a public opinion survey to find out what people thought about playing in woodland. Interestingly, 95% of people agreed that the places are fun and enjoyable but an increasing number said they were too busy to visit.

    Over a third of people quizzed said that in the last three years they have not visited a woodland or forest due to time pressure commitments. Yet 74% of people polled

  • Fun at the Robin Hood Festival Posted on 15 August 2011

    Robin Hood Festival has another hit year.

    Last Sunday proved the climax of the Robin Hood Festival at Sherwood Forest National Nature Reserve in Edwinstowe. This year, the Festival had moved dates to the second week in August to ensure the availability of some of the main acts, and had reduced from being a full week to a 5 day event.

    For such a mainstay high profile event, the organisers we’re understandably keeping a close eye on whether these changes would alter visitor numbers. They needn’t have worried though as once again, people flocked to quite possibly the biggest festival of Robin Hood in the world.

    If you’ve never been before this is probably a good time to explain what

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…
