Mother’s Day in Berkshire 2018

Mother’s Day in Berkshire 2018

It’s Mother’s Day on Sunday 11th March 2018 so Berkshire Mummies thought it would be useful to compile a few ideas of things you could do for Mother’s Day this year. Why not head out for a family walk or take a family trip to a park? There are loads of great places to walk and parks to explore in the Borough and Mother's Day could be the perfect time to explore somewhere new. Lots of restaurants are offering Mother’s Day Lunch deals,so it is worth searching the internet to see what is on offer for Mother's Day but here…

Happy World Book Day!

Happy World Book Day!

Despite the cold snowy weather and schools being closed I think it is really important to celebrate World Book Day. It is a great occasion to encourage reading and a chance to celebrate all the wonderful books that are out there for us to access. I really enjoying reading to my little one, who has already started to develop a great relationship with books. We read a whole range of books and enjoy our trips to the local library. One of our favourite books is Room on the Broom by Julia Donaldson and Axel Scheffler. We also really enjoy reading…

Exploring Lightwater Country Park

Exploring Lightwater Country Park

Lightwater Country Park is a brilliant open space to explore. Although the Country Park is in Surrey is isn’t far from the Berkshire boarder. The Country Park is just off junction 3 of the M3 between Bagshot and Lightwater. What is there to do when exploring Lightwater Country Park? We have been to exploring Lightwater Country Park on a number of occasions and enjoy walking through the woodlands and around the ponds. You can see and hear the M3 motorway through the woods on part of one of the trails but it is fenced off. Alongside the nature trails there…

Ascot Farmers’ Market

Ascot Farmers’ Market

On the last Sunday of half term we visited Ascot Farmers' Market which takes place in Car Park 3, opposite Ascot Racecourse. The Farmers' Market takes place on the third Sunday of the month between 9am - 1pm. We really enjoyed walking around the market, talking to the suppliers and tasting their food samples whilst learning a little more about the origins of the food they were selling. What food was on sale? There was a range of goods available from eggs, meat, fish, bread, honey, cakes, cheese and fruit and vegetables and we had an enjoyable time at the…

A family trip to Dinton Pastures Country Park

A family trip to Dinton Pastures Country Park

We took a family trip to Dinton Pastures Country Park during the first weekend of February half term. Despite it being cold the sky was bright blue and the sun was shining. We arrived at about 10am on the Sunday morning and parked in the overflow car park as the main car park was already full (parking charges apply). First of all we went for a walk around the lake. There were lots of ducks and geese to look at and plenty of muddy puddles! Our walk was lovely and it was fantastic to be outside in the fresh air,…

A Half Term Outing to Bracknell

A Half Term Outing to Bracknell

Today we took a trip into Bracknell. The outing was planned as there were a few advertised activities taking place in and around the town and I thought it was a great opportunity to get out of the house during half term, without spending a fortune. We parked in The Avenue car park at The Lexicon and paid £2.50 (charge for 1-2 hours parking). Firstly, we headed to Bracknell Library as there was a free Guide Dog Event. The library was busy with families visiting and we got the chance to meet 5 guide dogs - there were puppies who…

Windsor and Eton’s Flippin’ Pancake Challenge and Changing of the Guard, Windsor

Windsor and Eton’s Flippin’ Pancake Challenge and Changing of the Guard, Windsor

On a very wet, cold and soggy Shrove Tuesday we headed into Windsor, determined that the weather would not spoil our morning out. Once we’d parked we headed to Windsor Royal Station and watched the participants for the Windsor and Eton Flippin’ Pancake Challenge arriving and having photographs in their fancy dress. It was a little while until the Pancake Race started so we had a hot drink in a nearby café to warm ourselves up. Upon returning to the races we were greeted by some of the team mascots who came to say hello. There was a great atmosphere.…

Skiing without Snow

Skiing without Snow

With the Winter Olympics having just started in PyeongChang, I thought it was rather apt when the opportunity to interview Stephanie Cook who won the GB National Rollerski Series in 2016 presented itself, so I took the opportunity to find out a little more about how you can ski without snow in this country and in particular Berkshire. Steph started Rollerskiing 14 years ago after trying cross country skiing on holiday with her mum in New Zealand. She attended a ski club in the Yorkshire Dales where she lived at the time. This is where Steph learnt the techniques and…
