New powers to improve safety on Nottingham’s roads?

New powers to improve safety on Nottingham’s roads? I have long called for further enforcement of both moving and parking offences.  I read about the idea of moving moving traffic offences from the hands of the police to councils a couple of years ago.  Legislation has finally passed meaning it is now a possibility. With […]

Nottinghamshire Pride 2022

A few weekends ago was Nottinghamshire Pride.  I had such a brilliant and action packed weekend and I wanted to write about it here.  It was my first one as a resident of Nottingham. The fact I could go back to my home comforts for a bit of a rest, to recharge myself and my […]

Cycled 74 miles from Wellingborough to Nottingham

Towards the end of my degree, I set myself, at the time, the adventurous challenge of cycling […]

Doing January

The month of January is about to end; the first month of the year of 2016 gone.  How did that happen?  I’ve “done” January. The year of 2015 was very eventful. But I want to make 2016 even more so.  The first month was a relaxed one, but still quite eventful and now I feel […]
