    A lovely park. Well laid out with something to offer the youngest and oldest of visitors. I liked the walk around the lake, the sensory garden and the homemade cake in the #SunnySkiesCafe at the visitor centre just as you enter the park. It!s dog friendly too!

    Great for families especially with younger children. The larger rides however were closed at the time of our visit.
    The soft play is fun for all.
    Plenty of picnic areas and grounds kept tidy.

    41 Club is a UK association of ex Round Tablers. And so it was that as my penultimate monthly even as Current Chairman, I organised a trip to Belvoir Brewery for a merry band of 9 +driver.
    We received a friendly welcome from Colin, ably assisted by Michael (an ex pub landlord) behind the bar.
    Colin is clearly passionate about his business as a brewer and purveyor of great beers!
    After an interesting visit 'behind the scenes', coupled an informative talk by Colin on his "career in brewing', and the processes and materials involved in the craft of brewing, we retired to the lovely bar / restaurant to sample Colin's wares, and enjoy some delightful local produce as part of our" Tour Package". More beers followed before we poured ourselves on to our mini bus, for the drive home.
    An excellent evening out, which thoroughly recommended to beer buff. Or just take a lovely drive out for a light snack, a glass of beer, and be sure to take some bottles away with you to be enjoyed at home!
    "Thank you Colin and Michael" for a thoroughly enjoyable and informative evening!

    Gem of a museum. There's shop displays for a pie maker, a Stilton cheese maker and a chemist. The History of Melton Mowbray is covered with very useful information boards. And several screens with old photographs accompanied by more info. Very nicely done, the funding they received for their renovation has been well spent. I will definitely revisit as I didn't get round all the screens and exhibits.

    We had a wonderful weekend with friends at Glastonbudget! The toilets seemed to be emptied more often and stayed clean. As always, it's such a friendly place, everyone has a good time, no-one caused any trouble, no kids with too much beer/drugs as with some festivals. Very little queueing for the bar or the loos, the real ale bar with local ales was excellent and didn't run out of beer this year. Generally a very tidy site too. We camped closer to the arena this time and there were some noisy groups on the first night (all night!) so if you want quiet, camp further away or book the family/quiet field. Thumbs up to the organisers and all the staff. Looking forward to next year!

    Visited on Friday 22nd October 2021 as part of a mini-break. We were staying in the nearby Premier Inn. After checking in we took a wander around town and came across this church which is in a very old area of the town and included a sign detailing historic details of the area.

    We parked in the little car park belonging to the Park - it's free on Sundays. First stop was the cafe, the Pavilion Tea Rooms, - it's a bit upmarket for your typical park cafe. Our sandwiches were accompanied by salad and crisps. It was good though - plenty of seating.

    We wandered around the park, there's plenty of paths with flowers and ponds, etc to see as you walk around. An oasis in the town.

    Such a beautiful building. The windows really tell the story of the building. A very welcoming place to visit. Definitely worth a trip.

    Went to see a pantomime here and was surprised at how comfortable the seats were with lots of legroom. View of stage was very good from every where

    We visited Melton Mowbray and headed for the Antique shop just a short walk from the Market Place. It had just opened around 11am and it is surprising how big it is inside.

    The shop goes a long way back and there are more items on the first floor. Not too much space inside but lots to see in cabinets along the walls from various dealers as well as many items on display.

    Well worth popping in as you are sure to find something different.

    Not really a tourist attraction, It's just a stone cross in the middle of the shopping centre of Melton Mowbray. Most Market towns have a stone cross - I've seen worse & better stone crosses.

    This is a lovely historic village church dating back to the 13th Century with the tower & spire slightly later. The spire was cracked in an earthquake in 2008 but is still standing.
    Sadly on our visit it wasn't open to look around inside but the churchyard and building were interesting. It has a lovely lychgate too.

    I was lucky enough to win a place on Brocklebys first breadmaking workshop yesterday evening. Claire, who led the session was brilliant. Although we made a spelt loaf, and a soda bread in just over two hours it was fun, relaxed and informative. I was a complete beginner - although I own and use a breadmaker, I have never baked a loaf by hand. The pace of the course was spot on, the two hours just flew past, and I left with two delicious loaves. I am definitely going to buy some spelt flour and have a go at home, and also have a play around with different flavours of soda bread. Thanks Brocklebys, thoroughly enjoyed my evening
