Chinese New Year in Maidenhead – The Year of The Tiger

Chinese New Year in Maidenhead – The Year of The Tiger

A couple of years ago we experienced the Chinese New Year celebrations in Maidenhead which then marked the Year of the Dog. The sun shone as the Chinese Dragons danced their way down the high street after starting the procession with firecrackers, drums and dancing. There was a great atmosphere in the town as the Chinese Dragons, a symbol of China, which are believed to bring good luck to people, made their way along the procession route - it was fantastic to watch. This year, 2022, marks The Year of the Tiger and Maidenhead celebrate again on Saturday 5th February…

Christmas Lights at Kingfisher Chase, Jennett’s Park, Bracknell

Christmas Lights at Kingfisher Chase, Jennett’s Park, Bracknell

The Christmas Lights at Kingfisher Chase in Jennett's Park, Bracknell are just fantastic to see. I think it is the fact that all the lights are white makes them feel so magical and beautiful to see. Kingfisher Chase put in so much effort to their display. People drive and walk around the lights and the first year we saw them it was pretty busy, so it's worth being mindful of this if you visit. Are the lights raising money for charity? Yes, the lights are fundraising for charity and you will find QR codes around Kingfisher Chase which you can…

Growing sunflowers to #plantsomesunshine

Growing sunflowers to #plantsomesunshine

Are you growing sunflowers this spring and summer? We have planted some sunflower seeds and they are now growing on a window sill. This means they can be watered easily, whilst getting plenty of sunlight. We will move the flowers to the garden as soon as they are big enough to plant outside. Every year we plant sunflowers, alongside planting our vegetable patch as it always brings us such joy. We love the fact that the sunflowers look like giant sunshines, attract the bees and give the birds some seeds to eat in the autumn. We also love all the…
