Haunted House Halloween Party

Thursday, October 31st, 2013

For the last few years we’ve been having a Halloween party for our kids to bring some friends around. We have the usual party games, but this year wanted to do some things a bit different. The first thing was that along with my children we decided to make Halloween a bit more fun for […]

Sale of Flour and Eggs to under 18s

Tuesday, October 29th, 2013

West Mercia police are on a big crack down at the moment. I came across this poster at our local shop. Preventing the sale of flour and eggs to under-age children! Hopefully this will put an end to any unsolicited pastries and cakes that the children may decide to make over the next few weeks! […]

Day out at Pendennis Castle

Tuesday, October 22nd, 2013

We visited Pendennis Castle whilst staying at John Fowler’s in St Ives. It was a wet day and whilst castles don’t normally come on the top of the list for rainy days it looked as though Pendennis castle had a reasonable amount of buildings that could keep us dry. This turned out to be correct […]

Day out at the Eden Project

Holiday at John Fowler Holiday Park, St Ives Cornwall

Thursday, October 10th, 2013

We have stayed at a different John Fowler site previously (John Fowler holiday at Ilfracombe) and found it to have good kids entertainment and was good value for money. We therefore booked at the John Fowler holiday park in St Ives to extend our Butlins holiday into a second week. Fortunately we were able to […]

Halloween day out at West Midlands Safari Park – Spooky Spectacular

Tuesday, October 8th, 2013

We have visited West Midlands Safari Park twice this year. The first was during the summer bank holiday which was predictably very busy, but a good day out. When you visit the Safari Park you get a return ticket to visit on another occasion during that year. We used our return ticket during the Spooky […]

Could coding clubs be bad for the IT industry?

Tuesday, October 8th, 2013

Firstly as someone that runs a Code Club and a STEM ambassador I admit that I am a little biased, although I’ve hopefully provided some good reasoning to back up my comments. It seams to me that no matter what you do to try and improve something, there is always someone that puts together some […]
