REME Museum

A Family Day Out at The REME Museum

As a new museum in the county which details the story of the Royal Electrical & Mechanical Engineers within the Army, I thought this would be of particular interest to the three boys (two mine and one visiting) that I found myself having to entertain for the day. 

Salisbury Plain Safaris

Salisbury Plain Horseback Safari Experience

On an August weekend, we met bright and early at the Riverside riding stables in Shrewton, where we were met by James from Salisbury Plain Safaris. Time, we weren’t heading out in his 4x4 vehicle but we were going to experience Salisbury Plain on horseback!

Elements of Avebury

Learning new skills in the inspirational surroundings of Avebury

I am always keen to discover constructive ways to use the crafting techniques I have learnt over the years, so was really pleased to be invited along to a Creative Journaling Workshop. The workshop is one of many courses held at Elements of Avebury, a beautiful shop located right in the centre of the village set amongst ancient stones. The shop sells beautiful locally sourced gifts, and interesting products from further afield such as exquisite dresses made from recycled saris, and bags made in Africa from recycled water bottles.

Mad Max Tours

A tour of Lacock, Avebury and Castle Combe with Mad Max Tours

On a lovely summer’s afternoon recently I was invited to join a Mad Max Tour around North Wiltshire.  I joined the tour in Lacock, at this stage the group had already visited Stonehenge, and travelled through some of the beautiful Wiltshire countryside. Talking to some of those on board, they had thoroughly enjoyed Stonehenge and the journey so far, one lady from North America said she now wanted to move to Wiltshire because it was so beautiful!
