Medway Council are keeping 13 Children’s Centres open…

I’ve previously written about Medway Council’s closure of Sure Start Children’s Centres. The consultation period is over and there has now been a new proposal, as announced last week.

The new proposal means that 13 of the 19 children’s centres will remain open, but the services offered in some of them will be different. View Post

Afternoon tea at Creams British Luxury

Afternoon tea at Creams British Luxury

I can’t lie; when I found out about Creams British Luxury opening at Bluewater, I was excited. As far as I’m aware, there’s nowhere else at Bluewater that you can go for an afternoon tea. I was delighted to be given the opportunity to visit them and write a review. My mum adores afternoon tea, so I thought I’d take her as my guest for a pre-birthday treat. View Post

Harry & Rose Hair and Body Wash

Harry & Rose Hair and Body Wash

If there’s something I like doing, it’s helping to support local businesses. I met Harry & Rose at The Baby Show in Birmingham, but was delighted to find out they’re from Kent. At The Baby Show, I bought some of their Baby Nappy Spray. I love it as it’s so gentle, smells pleasant and you don’t have to rub it into your baby’s bottom. This is much easier now that Autumn’s on the move! It seems to have helped. We also tried some of their Baby Soft Lotion, which I was also impressed with.

When the opportunity arose to try Harry & Rose Hair – Body Wash, I was eager to give it a try. View Post

Celebrating 20 years of Harry Potter at Strood Library

Celebrating 20 years of Harry Potter at Strood Library

As all big fans of Harry Potter, (or ‘Potterheads‘) will know, this is a very important week indeed. Monday 26th June marked the 20th anniversary of the first book, The Philosopher’s Stone being published. In the two decades that have ensued, the hearts and imaginations of children and adults worldwide have been captured.

Many have been celebrating, and J.K. Rowling has thanked her fans.

When I found out that Strood Library/Community Hub were also celebrating the 20th anniversary, I was so delighted that I almost felt 8 years old again! View Post
