Discovering nature in Maidenhead on The Green Way. Days Out Guide / Family Friendly / Maidenhead

Picture the scene: the sun was shining, the eldest was at school, and my husband and I were at home with our soon-to-be-two little boy. Regular readers of the blog will know that I’m a firm believer in ‘little adventures’: I love to plot day trips to beaches, castles, beautiful towns… anywhere to inspire the mind and lift the soul. (Especially if there is a...

Cuddles, tickles, laughs and giggles: the unexpected truth of a career in childcare. Maidenhead / Reviews

Looking after little ones can be exhausting. Babies, toddlers, pre-schoolers, they each have their challenges. I work four days a week in an office, and when I leave at 5.30pm on Thursday for my ‘day off’ which involves looking after my toddler-sized little boy, I have to remind people that the hard work is just beginning. So when I try to imagine what it’s like...

The Lions take over the High Street Maidenhead / Maidenhead Moments

This post is the first in a new series here on the blog. I’ve noticed that when I share photos of an event I’ve been to in Maidenhead, I often get lots of questions or people wish that they had known about it beforehand. I figured that perhaps I can remedy this by sharing my #lovemaidenhead photography and writing about my experiences. So here is...

We showed the little man the bright colours of the stall and the helter skelter Family Friendly / Maidenhead

Once a year there is a pretty special event that comes to town. Organised by volunteers from the community for the lovely people of Maidenhead to enjoy, Maidenhead Festival transforms Kidwell’s park in the centre of town to a bright and bustling fun weekend for all the family. There’s live music, a funfair, a beach and plenty of stalls to browse and buy from, many...

Show why you #lovemaidenhead and win. Family Friendly / Maidenhead

Way back at the beginning of the year I had a little idea. As I scrolled through my instagram feed I realised that there were very few photos of Maidenhead being shared. There were plenty of amazing photos of London… and even Windsor. But Maidenhead? Zilch. I appreciate that we don’t have as many iconic landmarks or famous places to visit. But as a community...

Family friendly live music: Concertini reviewed. Family Friendly / Maidenhead

I was recently invited along to a classical music concert at Norden Farm. Not a traditional one though! This was a concert with a difference as it wasn’t a ‘sit-in-your-seats’ kind of concert but instead, one where children are encouraged to chill out, dance or even just colour in. Concertini is definitely something a little bit special and was a great way to spend my...

Although we had queued to get into Cliveden we avoided the crowds and explored the woods instead of following the Easter Trail. Maidenhead

As we have suddenly landed in June I thought it was high time that I published an update on the #lovemaidenhead photography project that I started back in January. What is #lovemaidenhead? In case you’ve not heard of the project, it’s a community based photo project that I have created to help Maidenhead get the recognition it deserves for being a great place to live. The idea...

Create a ‘wow’ wedding with the Craft Coop Wedding Event Local Talent / Maidenhead

With Maidenhead going through a period of change with the imminent Crossrail development, it’s quite common to see empty units appear in the Nicholson shopping centre. But if you’ve been in town recently, you may have spotted something a little bit different in the window of the old Fineweave Carpet shop (round the corner from Clarks). Bespoke, unique, and made by local crafters and businesses,...
