Hello one and all, and welcome to the March/April edition of The Bradgate Magazine!
Spring is nearly with us, well, come Saturday 20th March it is (officially!), so let’s hope the turn in season bodes well for a turn in the pandemic, and everyone’s fortunes, for all the right reasons.
The year continues to be a topsy-turvy one but there are signs that our good old fashioned British-resilience is kicking in – businesses are adapting to life online and its great to see charities and local groups doing the same to maintain a semblance of ‘normal’ where possible – see Marie Curie’s ‘Step into Spring’ event as well as the Royal Volunteer Services’ ‘Step Up Challenge’ to keep you active, or how about taking part in a mindful and meditative virtual yoga class with Becs McBride to chill your inner zen; we love too the online talks service Leicestershire and Rutland Wildlife Trust has put together – exciting and informative nature-themed talks all accessible from the comfort of your own home.
With the advent of better weather and a sunnier outlook too we’ve enjoyed reviewing the wares and services offered by some of our brilliant local providers, from Birstall Garden Centre and their fabulous outdoor kitchens, to Purple Badger Camping & Fishing Lakes, who offer a little something of everything as part a treat retreat, whilst over in neighbouring Nottingham…Cabin Master and Arctic Cabins, bring you the most beguiling garden spaces and buildings, and with their open air Cabin Master Village to peruse, when the green light is given to get out and about, add it your destination to do list for sure!
Enjoy the read!
