I have found since I moved home that there are loads of local things going on in the area but I generally hear about them the week after they have happened.    A lot is advertised on Facebook and signs on the road or notice boards but I think a list of them might be useful.  Every time I see something advertised I’ll post it here.  These might be days out for the family or things you want to get a babysitter for and go yourself!  It is not an exhaustive list.  

If you see something that you think a friend or family would like to go to or try out please send it to me and I’ll put it up.
