Visiting Mill Meadows, Henley on Thames

Despite being in Oxfordshire, Henley on Thames is just over the Berkshire boarder (approx 25 minutes / 30 minutes from Reading / Maidenhead) and worth a visit. It's not only a quaint town to visit but you can have some great walks along the river watching the boats and wildlife. One of our favourite parts of Henley on Thames to visit is Mill Meadows. In terms of walking we generally head back from Mill Meadows towards the town for a walk, if we want a short walk we turn back at the bridge, by The Angel on the Bridge pub (this path is mainly hard standing and buggy friendly and takes about 15 / 20 minutes each way). However, if we are looking for a longer walk, we will cross over the bridge onto the other side of the road and river and walk as far as 'little feet' will go and turn back on ...

A visit to the Museum of Berkshire Aviation, Woodley

I have decided that in 2020 we are going to aim to visit some of Berkshire’s Museums, there are loads of them but haven’t got round to visiting them yet. We are an outdoor family so tend to head out for a walk or an outdoor adventure but since writing this blog I have realised there are loads of fantastic museums in Berkshire that we need to visit. Our eldest and my husband both love aeroplanes and helicopters so when we saw the Museum of Berkshire Aviation recommended on a local Facebook group we decided to go and have a look. The museum isn’t huge and is based at the historic site of Woodley Airfield, near Reading - once the centre of a thriving aircraft industry. The museum is crammed full of aircraft of all different shapes and sizes and plenty of aircraft artefacts and me

AD – Press Trip // The Royal County of Berkshire Show

As a family we attend The Royal County of Berkshire Show annually and this year were lucky enough to be invited as press. The show runs for two days and this year we went on the Sunday. Unfortunately upon arrival there was a torrential down pour that lasted over an hour and we started the day a bit wet but luckily the sun decided to shine for the rest of the day and we had a lovely dry afternoon at the show. The first attraction we went to see (in the terrible weather) was the ‘Grass to Glass’ Tractor pageant in the main arena. It was great to see such a diverse range of machinery on display. After that we went to look at the show animals. There were pigs, goats, chickens, ducks, sheep, cows, llamas and more. It’s always lovely to see the different breeds and watch some of the

Our Half Term visit to The Fairy Tale Forest at The Lexicon, Bracknell

On the Tuesday of the February Half Term we visited The Fairy Tale Forest at The Lexicon. I had pre-booked tickets online and paid full price for our tickets - £2 per child plus a booking fee of 30p and I was free of charge as an accompanying adult (there is a charge for additional adults). The Fairy Tale Forest is on until 22nd February 2019 and you are advised to book tickets online to avoid disappointment. Upon arrival, we were checked into the event and children were asked to sit on bean bags underneath a giant inflatable green leaf. The decoration certainly helped set the scene for the story telling. There was also seating provided for the adults. Little Red Reading Hood and the Wild Wolf then introduced themselves and led the session which lasted about 20 minutes. The audienc

A Half Term visit to Windsor

On the Monday of the February Half Term 2019 my little one and I took a visit to Windsor. I had previously booked my little one in to do a Bath Bomb making workshop at Lush UK Windsor. The session lasted about 25 minutes and cost us £2.95 (price varies depending on what is made during the workshop) and my little one (with my help) made a Butterball Bath Bomb to take home. There were 7 children (plus supervising adults) taking part in the Bath Bomb making workshop we attended. A member of Lush staff led the session and everyone made the Bath Bomb mixture collectively before individually putting the mixture into the moulds we were given. I thought the session was a great hands-on activity and a nice introduction to science for my child. After our visit to Lush UK Windsor, we the

AD – Review // The Fir Tree, Norden Farm

On Monday, 26th November 2018, I took my little one to Norden Farm, Maidenhead to see their Christmas production, The Fir Tree written by Tove Jannson. I was kindly given two tickets by Norden Farm in exchange for reviewing the show. After collecting our tickets from the box office there were plenty of members of staff on hand to ask questions to and to direct us to our seats in the theatre. The set was on display on the stage when we arrived, for us this was great as it allowed my little one to ask questions and build anticipation in the lead up to the performance starting. The show was a mixture of live puppetry, music and singing and you soon focused on the puppet characters rather than the puppeteers themselves. I thought the set was very clever with a great use of props and...

Sunninghill Victorian Street Fayre 2018

Today we spent a lovely family day at Sunninghill Victorian Street Fayre. It is the first time we have been to the event and there was a real community feel throughout the village. The High Street and school playground was lined with stalls selling a variety of food, drink and gifts, plus charities were raising money. There were fairground rides, Punch and Judy, Father Christmas and live music. The local shops were also open for the community to utilise. A marching bagpipe band processed up the High Street and there was an opportunity to sit in a Ghost Busters car. The event was free of charge and there was also a shuttle bus from Ascot High Street. It was a great free event, raising money for local charities and the weather was just right. We will certainly lo...

Swan Upping 2018

Today we witnessed Swan Upping for the first time and I feel extremely honoured to have been able to see this event. My little one also had the opportunity to stroke one of the cygnets, who was a couple of months old and the Swan Uppers took the time to explain what they were doing and were great with the children (and adults) observing the historic event. Swan Upping takes place annually for a week in July and this year takes place every day until Friday 20th July 2018. The Queen’s Swan Warden collects data on the swans in the River Thames and checks the health of the cygnets. Swan Upping is a fantastic sight to see as a number of rowing skiffs with Swan Uppers travelling down the river, wearing their scarlet uniform of Her Majesty the Queen. The Swan Uppers are from the Vintn
