    My Family day out at Wheelgate

    Last week my daughter was invited to a birthday party at Wheelgate. I have to admit that I had never been before and didn’t know what to expect from this small theme park in the Sherwood Forest area. We took a picnic and headed out in the morning on what was to soon become quite a sweltering hot day.

    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.

    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.

    Now, I hear the cries of fear from those of you who consider yourselves scared of heights.  For many of you, the prospect of swinging from the treetops probably isn’t your idea of a great day out. Up until a couple

Speak In Nottingham To Me – A Beginner’s Guide To Nottingham’s Dialect

Language is certainly one of our best creations. Without it, it would be difficult for us to coexist, establish communities and share feelings. Language makes it all easier and helps us work together and understand one another. Throughout history people always felt the need to find one universal language for all. Several attempts were made to popularise different languages…
