Bing Live! comes to the Orchard Theatre in Dartford, Kent

Does the phrase “It’s a Bing thing” sound familiar to you? If so, like me, you’re probably the parent of a Bing-loving toddler! Bing, a CGI programme on CBeebies follow the adventures of Bing bunny, his carer Flop and his friends. He experiences various new situations, which often lead to him overcoming a problem, usually with help from those around him. Now, Bing Live! brings Bing and his friends to life on stage for pre-schoolers – and they’re coming to the Orchard Theatre in Dartford, Kent! View Post

Acorn Dell at Hever Castle: A day in pictures

Acorn Dell at Hever Castle: A day in pictures

We were recently invited to the opening of a new play area for children under 7 at Hever Castle, which took place yesterday. This new playground, fittingly called Acorn Dell, blends in with the Tudor Towers play area. It continues the castle theme, with castellations featuring in both the play area and the seating area at the top. The natural aesthetic of the playground is fantastic and encourages children to use their imagination.

JB Gill, formerly of JLS, who presents Down on the Farm on CBeebies was the guest of honour to cut the blue ribbon before the playground was opened. His wife Chloe and 3 year-old son Ace also attended. Of course, the new playground needed some little testers!  View Post

A bouncy blow dry at Rush Hair, Maidstone

A bouncy blow dry at Rush Hair, Maidstone

As a busy mum, my hair often doesn’t look its best. It gets dried as quickly as possible and if I’m lucky, I’ll find 5 minutes or so to style it. I was recently invited to Rush Hair at their new Maidstone salon in Week Street for a blow dry. Not only was I looking forward to leaving the salon with beautiful hair, I was also looking forward to having some ‘me time’! So, how did it all go? View Post

Exploring Animals of the Ice Age at Howletts

Exploring Animals of the Ice Age at Howletts

Despite living in Kent all my life, I’ve never actually visited Howletts before. However, I was recently invited to visit and check out the new Animals of the Ice Age exhibit. Opened at Easter, this new attraction consists of a woodland walk in which there are life sized animals from the ice age to marvel at. It certainly provides yet another reason to visit Howletts for a family day out! View Post
